Sequoia Grove – Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 – Henry Brothers Vineyard – Napa Valley 

The nose is fruity and offers a very slight freshness as well as a small concentration. It reveals notes of dark chocolate, boysenberry and fine touches of cassis associated with slight hints of crunchy red fruits, ripe bell pepper as well as discreet hints of gray pepper and an imperceptible hint of flowers. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers suavity, a small minerality, a slight tension as well as slight straightness. On the palate this wine expresses notes of juicy blackberry, fleshy / juicy raspberry associated with small touches of cassis, small red berries as well as discreet hints of red bell pepper / flowers, chocolate and a imperceptible sappy hint. Tannins are well-built. Good length. The finish is slightly tight.
