Duckhorn Vineyards – The Discussion 2011 – Napa Valley

(62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 29% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc, 3% Petit Verdot) The nose is fine, elegant, complex and slightly velvety. It reveals notes of blackberry, plum and flowers (violet, blueberry) associated with slight notes of cassis, cassis leaves as well as touches of licorice. The palate is elegant, fat, fruity, structured, precise and offers a beautiful silky matter, juicy fruits and mineral frame. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of blackberry, slight notes of blueberry and strawberry associated with a few notes of blueberry cream, a hint of violet fig as well as small notes of toasted oak. Tannins are fine, elegant, racy and supple. Good length and persistence with toasted notes.
