Provenance – Sleeping Lady Vineyard 2016, Cabernet Sauvignon – Yountville, Napa Valley

The nose offers freshness, a small power as well as a fine richness and deepness. It reveals notes of cassis, ripe strawberry and small notes of violet associated with small touches of blackberry, ripe cherry as well as hints of cornflower, cardamom, mild tobacco leaves and an imperceptible hint of Cuben pepper. The mouth is fruity, fresh, mineral, well-balanced and offers a good definition, a fine juiciness as well as an acidulous frame and gourmandize. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of fleshy blackberry, fleshy cassis and small notes of crushed raspberry associated with small touches of violet plum as well as subtle hint of cornflower, graphite and violet plum. Tannins are precise, structuring and elegant?
