The Debate – Cabernet Sauvignon 2015, Beckstoffer To Kalon – Napa Valley

The nose is fruity, fresh, well-balanced and offers a beautiful power, a fleshy fruit as well as a beautiful concentration (but full of finesse). It reveals notes of cassis, blue fruits and small notes of fleshy blackberry, fleshy raspberry, violet combined with subtle hints of camphor, sweet spices, tea as well as discreet toasted hints and caramelization. The palate is fruity, juicy, silky, elegant and offers a beautiful suavity, a slight acidulous frame, a beautiful finesse of the grain, a beautiful definition / gourmandise as well as a beautiful matter. On the palate this wine expresses notes of black cherry, crushed cassis, blackberry and small notes of raspberry associated with touches of juicy blueberry, chocolate, caramelization. Tannins are fine and a bit firm. A beautiful and delicious wine!
