Napa and Sonoma Cabernet 2009: panel tasting results

Decanter average score: 17pts/20 (90/100pts)
Individual judge’s scores: Stephen Brook 17 Yohann Jousselin MS 16.5 David Motion 17.5
Lean but pure blackcurrant nose, quite restrained and elegant. Sleek, lifted and pure, far from the typical Napa sumptuousness, and a nice sense of freshness runs through it. The elegance and coolness are welcome and appealing.
