Duckhorn Vineyards – Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 – Napa Valley

(79% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot and 2% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot) The nose is fine, powerful, elegant and racy. It reveals notes of blackberry, plum and slight notes of violet associated with discreet notes of spices and chocolate. The palate is mineral, fruity, fat, round, juicy, elegant, well-made, suave and offers a beautiful silky matter and a beautiful acidity. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of blackberry, strawberry and a few notes of black cherry (in the background) associated touches of blueberry as well as woody notes, slight toasted notes, spices and hazelnut on the finish. Tannins are fine and racy. Good length. A nicely gourmand and charming wine.
