The deep purple color is accentuated by vibrant red hues. This Cabernet Sauvignon is an attractive fruit driven red with a full bouquet of sweet berries and violets complemented by subtle French oak. The ripe berry characters flow smoothly onto the palate combining with spices and vanilla oak and soft chewy tannins.
A generous wine, representing tremendous value for the money. This wine is perfect to drink now and additional complexity may be gained with aging. Serve with roast lamb with fresh thyme, rosemary and sage or vintage cheddar cheeses.
Silver, Best Buy, 2010 World Wine Championships:
"Deep garnet-violet color. Aromas of cassis jam, eucalyptus and menthol tobacco follow through on a round, entry to a fruity medium-to-full body with good depth and tangy tropical citrus acidity. Finishes with a crisp, tangy melon, toasty praline, and spice accented fade. A very lively and tasty crowd pleaser."
