Cabernet Sauvignon

Tasting Notes

Aromas of black currant and all-spice waft from the glass while on the palate the wine expresses flavors of black cherry, red pears and a hint of iron minerality. It is full-bodied with bold tannins but balanced with a nice smokiness on the in finish. The wine will pair well with beef steaks and wild game meats.

Vibrant, refreshing and tight, with currant and cherry flavors, nicely shaded with gentle hints of wet loamy earth and spice. -hs
