Mt Brave 2014 – Mt. Veeder, Napa Valley

The nose is aromatic, elegant, precise and offers a very beautiful finesse of the grain as well as a very beautiful precision. It reveals notes of juicy blackberry, fleshy cassis, wild raspberry and small touches of cherry associated with discreet hints of oak, caramelization, tonka bean, crushed blueberry, Cuben pepper and a subtle hint of camphor. The mouth is fresh, fruity, well-balanced, a bit powdery, precise, elegant and offers a slight acidulous frame, a small juiciness, a beautiful suavity, delicacy as well as a beautiful definition. On the palate this wine expresses notes of fleshy blackberry, juicy plum and juicy raspberry associated with touches of dark chocolate, oaky / caramelized touches as well as discreet hints of tonka bean and sweet spices. Tannins are fine and very slightly chewy. Good length. There are a very discreet hint of almond, square of dark chocolate, juicy blackberry and a very discreet hint of juicy raspberry on the finish / persistence. A very beautiful wine!
