Delectus – Cabernet Sauvignon 2009 – Sacrashe Vineyard – Rutherford, Napa Valley

The nose is fruity, concentrated and fine. It reveals notes of blackberry cream, cassis and very ripe black cherry associated with a hint of red fruit, touches of mocha, spices, Sichuan pepper as well as discreet hints of caramel. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, precise, a bit aerial and offers a nice fresh frame, a nice volume, a nice fat and a nice definition. On the palate this wine expresses notes of blackberry, black cherry and juicy plum associated with slight touches of strawberry, fine notes of liquorice, colas as well as discreet hints of wood, cocoa and sweet spices. Tannins are fine, elegant and a bit dusty. Good length.
