Luna Vineyards – Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain 2013 – Napa Valley

The nose is fine, racy, finely powerful and offers freshness. It reveals notes of blackberry, cassis jam, red cherry jelly and fine notes of pepper (gray, black) associated with fine touches of grilled oak and a discreet touch of racy minerality (rock) . The palate is fruity, fluid, silky, well-balanced, relatively fat and offers a good structure and a fine minerality (in the background). On the palate this wine expresses notes of cherry, cranberry, raspberry and blackberry associated with fine notes of dark chocolate / mocha and wood on the finish. Tannins are fine and slightly dry. Good length and persistence.
