This is definitely a Cabernet Sauvignon with plenty of character and personality, right from the start with its beautiful and concentrated ruby red colour. Intense notes of plum, cassis, and blueberries, combined harmonically with softer earthy traces, mocha and smoked hints. Full, complex and intense with persistence and elegance at the end.
It goes well with all kinds of red meats, pate, lamb and game included. It also serves well with spicy sauces or strong condiments, especially dishes that include this variety in their cooking (Boeuf Bourguignon is the ultimate example). When pairing it with cheeses, choose dry and/or strong-flavoured types along the lines of Brie, Gorgonzola, Camembert or Cheddar.
