Joseph Phelps – Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 – Napa Valley

The nose is fruity, structured, relatively rich and offers a certain concentration. It reveals notes of blackberry cream, cassis and a fine touch of cherry associated with hints of red fruits as well as discreet notes of spice. The palate is fruity, gourmand, well-balanced, relatively fleshy and offers a mineral frame, a good freshness, a good density as well as a beautiful and silky matter. On the palate this wine expresses notes of blackberry, cassis and fine touches of strawberry, blueberry associated with slight touches of liquorice, small notes of minerality as well as fine touches of caramelized oak. Tannins are fine and (very) slightly firm. Good length.
