Conn Creek – Cabernet Sauvignon 2016, AVA Series – Atlas Peak, Napa Valley

The nose is fresh, fruity and offers power and finesse. It reveals notes of fresh blackberry, fresh cassis and small notes of fresh strawberry associated with fine touches of tonka bean, violet and fine hints of spices. The mouth offers gourmandize, a beautiful definition, generosity as well as an acidulous frame. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of fleshy blackberry, fleshy cassis and small notes of fleshy/juicy strawberry, fleshy blueberry associated with fine touches of cocoa, nutmeg, tonka bean as well as a subtle hint of vanilla bourbon (in the background). Tannins are elegant and well-built. Good length and persistence.
