Jericho Canyon Vineyard – Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve 2014 – Napa Valley

Jericho Canyon Vineyard – Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve 2014 – Napa Valley

The nose is fine, fresh and offers minerality. It reveals notes of blueberry jam, cassis and fine touches of wild strawberry associated with hints of cardamom, rocky minerality, spice, a hint of graphite and a hint of Sichuan pepper. The wine needs to be worked/aerated in the glass. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, well-defined, well-structured and offers finesse, a good freshness, a nice fresh frame as well as a nice unctuous matter. On the palate this wine expresses notes of cassis, juicy blackberry and hints of strawberry, cherry, fresh fruits associated with touches of chocolate / mocha, licorice as well as a hint of black olive, sweet spices and small touches of toasted oak. Tannins are young and medium grain. Good length and persistence.
