Corison, Helios – Cabernet Franc 2016 – Sunbasket Vineyard – St Helena, Napa Valley

The nose is fruity and offers a fine gourmandize. It reveals notes of blackberry, cassis and crushed strawberry associated with fine touches of green pepper, cornflower as well as very fine hints of nutmeg/sweet spices and tonka bean. The mouth is fruity, well-balanced and offers a juicy frame, suavity and a small racy power. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of ripe cassis, ripe wild cassis and small notes of wild raspberry associated with fine touches of cherry as well as very fine hints of violet, cardamom and sweet spices. Tannins are well-built. Good length.
