Jericho Canyon Vineyard – Cabernet Sauvignon 2016, Reserve – Calistoga, Napa Valley

The nose is fruity, elegant and offers a good definition and concentration. It reveals notes of blackberry, ripe cassis and small notes of violet associated with touches of liquorice, hints of blue fruits as well as fine hints of dry oak, dry ground, racy minerality as well as fine hints of black pepper and tea. The mouth is fruity, well-balanced and offers a juicy frame, a good definition and gourmandize. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of fleshy cassis, small wild black berries associated with a fine touch of crushed black plum as well as small crushed wild red berries and fine hints of tobacco. Tannins are precise and very finely marked. Good length.
