Duckhorn Vineyards – The Discussion 2013 – Napa Valley

The nose is fine and elegant. It reveals notes of wild blackberry, wild black berries and touches of Sichuan pepper combined with small notes of fleshy strawberry and chocolate / tonka bean. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, elegant and offers a beautiful mineral frame, a slight freshness, harmony as well as concentration. On the palate this wine expresses notes of blackberry cream, cassis and slight notes of fleshy / crushed black berries associated with slight touches of fleshy raspberry, chocolate, caramelized oak, vanilla, slight notes of spices as well as an imperceptible hint of cigar / tobacco (in the background) and cardamom. Tannins are fine, well-built, elegant and slightly firm. Good length.
