Darius II – Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 – Napa Valley

(90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Merlot, 4% Malbec) The nose is fruity, fresh, relatively powerful and offers a small intensity, elegance and a certain charm. It reveals notes of blackberry, ripe cassis, black cherry and touches of plum associated with a discreet touch of cornflower as well as a fine hint of Ceylon tea, incense and a very discreet hint of cocoa. The palate is fruity, sleek and offers juiciness, a mineral frame, suavity, a good structure, tension and a silky matter. On the palate this wine expresses notes of juicy blackberry, cassis and touches of raspberry associated with hints of black cherry, fine notes of cornflower, liquorice as well as discreet hints tea and touches of spice. Tannins are fine, elegant and young. Good length and persistence. To drink from 2020.
