Conn Creek – Cabernet Sauvignon 2015, Battuello Vineyard – St. Helena, Napa Valley

The nose is elegant, racy and offers a slight freshness as well as a very slight concentration. It reveals notes of cassis, black cherry and small notes of crushed blackberry associated with touches of fleshy strawberry, small touches of almond, blueberry, cocoa, sweet spices as well as a very discreet hint of local vegetation, tobacco and colas / licorice. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a good definition, a small fat, suavity as well as a slight acid / juicy frame. On the palate this wine expresses notes of cassis, black cherry and small notes of crushed blackberry associated with touches of fleshy / ripe Garriguette strawberry, crushed raspberry as well as slight hints of violet, caramelization, Zan, toasted oak, tobacco and a very discreet hint of almond (in the background). Tannins are fine and slightly mellow. Good length.
