Corison – Sunbasket Vineyard – Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 – St. Helena – Napa Valley

The nose is fruity and offers a slight concentration as well as a slight richness. The wine needs to be decanted. It reveals notes of blackberry, fleshy cassis and slight touches of wild fruits combined with slight hints of blueberry, a subtle / discreet hint of Quetsche plum as well as very discreet hints of spices and wood. The mouth is fruity, juicy, well-balanced and offers a beautiful definition, a beautiful guideline, tension, straightness, gourmandise, fleshiness, a slight juiciness, freshness as well as a beautiful finesse. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fleshy / juicy Boysenberry and touches of cassis associated with small touches of small fruits as well as discreet hints of toasted oak as well as an imperceptible touch of tonka bean. Tannins are well-built. Good length and beautiful persistence. There are subtle hints of vanilla and subtle toasted hints on the persistence.
