A superb handcrafted wine of complexity and intensity. Brilliant ruby red in color, the bouquet displays enticing aromas of blackcurrant, tobacco, green tea and mint. The palate is rich and concentrated while the elegant French oak gives a 'subtle lift' to the wine. Soft supple tannins add to the texture and weight, and the long, lingering finish. This wine will age gracefully for 10 years plus.
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.
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.
