Conn Creek – Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 – Ava Series – Probst Family Vineyards – Atlas Peak, Napa Valley

The nose is aromatic and offers elegance. It reveals notes of blackberry, undergrowth, ripe cassis and hints of wild strawberry combined with hints of wild strawberry as well as slight touches of mushroom and a subtle touch of humus. The palate is fruity, slightly tight and offers a slight unctuosity, minerality, a good definition as well as a slight mineral frame (in the background). On the palate this wine expresses notes of fleshy black cherry, cassis and slight / discreet hints of wild / fleshy red fruits associated with discreet hints of mushroom, forest soil as well as a very discreet touch of nutmeg (in background). Tannins are fine and a bit chewy. Good length. There are a very slight touch of mocha on the persistence and an imperceptible touch of caramelization on the aftertaste.
