Marston Family Vineyard – Cabernet Sauvignon 2006 – Spring Mountain District, Napa Valley

The nose is elegant and offers finesse, power (but full of finesse), complexity, concentration, a good finesse of the grain as well as a beautiful definition. It reveals notes of boysenberry, wild cassis and small notes of small wild fruits associated with slight touches of Sichuan pepper, graphite as well as very discreet hints of iris. The palate is fruity, fresh, rich, round, suave, beautifully balanced, harmonious, very slightly tight and offers a beautiful fat, concentration, a beautiful depthness, a good minerality, power as well as a beautiful volume. On the palate this wine expresses notes of crushed wild cassis, blackberry and small notes of juicy redcurrants, crushed wild strawberry associated with touches of local vegetation / tarweed (Madia), discreet hints of black olive, dark chocolate, discreet grilled hints, coffee and very discreet hints of tabacco (on the finish / persistence). Tannins are fine, very slightly tight and very slightly dry. Good length.
