About the wine

Tasting notes

Deep and dark with a dense core. The nose shows fruit to the fore, although much more: cassis, raspberry coulis, an underlay of red liquorice, black olive, soy and artefacts of well hidden oak. Youthful, lively and alluring! Textured, lush and chewy, with an even coating of talc-like tannins, the palate has a 'compression' of flavour, without heaviness or over- extraction...marmalade, orange and tangerine citrus notes align with those that decry Cabernet. The wine is poised and balanced, with highly stylised and crafted oak, and highly defined and structured, showcasing the 'finest cut' of ripe, low yielding Cabernet.

The Grape

Cabernet Sauvignon

A red grape variety that is responsible for the most expensive wines on the planet...some fetching over $100, 000 per bottle!!! It is also the worlds most popular style of wine and produces age worthy and concentrated expressions that show notes of potpourri, cassis, black cherry, blackberry, mulberry, raspberry, leafy herbals, green pepper, baking spices, charcoal, graphite and cedar. Most famous for the first growth wines from the Left Bank in Bordeaux, Cabernet Sauvignon is often used as a primary variety for red blends designed to last decades and is a must have style for any serious collector.
