Pine Ridge – Stag Leaps Distict Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 – Napa Valley

The nose is powerful, concentrated and relatively fine. It reveals notes of blackberry cream, cassis and touches of liquorice associated with a hint of gray pepper, touches of tobacco and a hint of flowers. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, well structured, relatively depth and offers a good volume, harmony, juiciness as well as a good matter and smoothness. On the palate this wine expresses notes of black cherry, candied strawberry, cassis, fine hints of purple fig associated with fine touches of liquorice, cola as well as slight touches of graphite and cardamom. Tannins are fine and supple. Good length.
