Deep ruby-red in color, this Cabernet Sauvignon has blackberry and red pepper aromas with notes of eucalyptus and cinnamon. Elegant on the palate, this wine has good structure as well as round and firm tannins. High in color, tannin, and extract, Cabernet Sauvignon expresses notes of blackberry, cassis, plum, currant, spice, and tobacco. In Bordeaux and elsewhere in the Old World you'll find the more earthy, tannic side of Cabernet, where it's typically blended to soften tannins and add complexity. In warmer regions like California and Australia, you can typically expect more ripe fruit flavors upfront.

A wine that on the nose is reminiscent of dried strawberries, crushed minerals and some hints of licorice. This is really concentrated, almost jammy, but not overdone, with a fresh finish.
Cabernet Sauvignon is right at home with rich, intense meat dishes—beef, lamb, and venison, in particular—where its opulent fruit and decisive tannins make an equal match to the dense protein of the meat. With a mature Cabernet, opt for tender, slow-cooked meat dishes.
