Levy & McClellan 2016 – Napa Valley

Levy & McClellan 2016 – Napa Valley

The nose is elegant, powerful and offers a beautiful structure, complexity and a very beautiful finesse of the grain. It reveals notes of blackberry, ripe cassis and small notes of strawberry associated with fine touches of arbutus fruits, flowers (lilac, lily), raspberry as well as very discreet hints of nutmeg and violet. The mouth is fruity, elegant, gourmand and offers a good definition, a great structure as well as a beautiful fruit. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of fleshy raspberry, fleshy strawberry and small notes of juicy Boysen berry associated with a fine touch of juicy blueberry, violet as well as hints of sens of the place and grey pepper. Tannins are elegant and very discreetly firm. Good length. A very discreet hint of cocoa and salinity on the persistence after the 3rd/4th caudalie.
