The Debate – Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 – Beckstoffer To Kalon – Napa Valley

The nose is fruity, relatively powerful and offers concentration and generosity. It reveals touches of black fruit, cassis, blackberry and hints of raspberry associated with discreet hints of toasted oak, a discreet hint of cornflower as well as very slight notes of caramelization and sweet spices (vanilla…). The palate is fruity, elegant, relatively fleshy and offers fat, suavity, freshness, a silky matter, a nice tannic structure, a juicy fruit as well as a small fresh frame. On the palate this wine expresses notes of blackberry cream, cassis and fresh fruit associated with slight notes of caramelization and wood. Tannins are fine.
