Nicholson Jones – Cabernet Sauvignon 2013, Sleeping Lady Vineyard – Yountville, Napa Valley

The nose is fruity, crunchy, juicy and offers a small concentration. It reveals notes of crunchy redcurrants, cassis and small notes of boysenberry, flowers associated with discreet hints of grove, fresh red berries and spices. The palate is fruity, juicy, elegant, gourmand, tense, precise and offers a beautiful crunchiness, a beautiful structure, a beautiful concentration, a good guideline, a racy minerality as well as a good matter and a slight grainy sensation. On the palate this wine expresses notes of juicy / fleshy redcurrants, fleshy cassis and small notes of juicy / fresh black berries associated with small touches of strawberry, discreet hints of blueberry, grove / sap as well as a very discreet hint of menthol and sweet spices / green cardamom (in the background). Tannins are very slightly dry / firm. Good length and good persistence. (2020+)
