Duckhorn Vineyards – The Discussion 2012 – Napa Valley

(64% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot) The nose is fruity, concentrated and finely powerful. It reveals notes of black cherry and blackberry associated with fine touches of raspberry jam, cranberry, wood as well as discreet notes of coffee, gray pepper, anise and slight notes of wild flowers. The palate is fruity, suave, elegant, relatively depth and offers juiciness, a beautiful harmony as well as a beautiful and silky matter. On the palate this wine expresses notes of juicy blackberry, cranberry, cassis and discreet touches of wild strawberry associated with hints of small wild berries as well as touches of spices, graphite, Lapsang Souchong tea and discreet touches of oak. Tannins are fine and elegant. Good length. There are slight touches of toasted / caramelized oak on the finish.
