Jericho Canyon Vineyard – Cabernet Sauvignon 2016, East Elevation – Calistoga, Napa Valley

The nose is fruity and offers freshness, tension and power. It reveals notes of ripe cassis, small wild berries and small notes of wild strawberry associated with fine touches of sens of the place and spices. The mouth is fruity, well-balanced and offers a good definition, juiciness, freshness as well as a certain finesse. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of violette associated with fine touches of Cuben pepper as well as fine hints of tonka bean caramelization and a subtle hint of dry ground. Tannins are elegant and well-built. Good persistence.
