Levy & McClellan – Ampersand 2015 – Napa Valley

The nose is fruity, elegant and offers subtilty as well as elegance. It reveals notes of wild blackberry, ripe cassis and small notes of wild raspberry associated with fine touches of flowers, Cuben pepper and very discreet hints of nutmeg. The mouth is fruity, well-balanced and offers an acidulous frame, a beautiful definition as well as dynamism. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of ripe raspberry, ripe cassis and small notes of ripe blackberry associated with small red berries, flowers (iris, violet and small wild flowers) as well as fine touches of tonka bean and chocolate. Good persistence. Tannins are elegant, fine and offer a subtle chew on the finish.
