Winery Tasting Notes
The appearance is deep plum red with dense crimson and garnet hues on the rim and long, viscous legs coating the glass.
The bouquet is a complex array of ripe fruit combined with earthy herbs, spice and toasty oak. Cherries and plums are backed by anise, mint and cedar with hints of coffee bean and fine dark chocolate.
The palate is classically structured, full bodied, deep and meaty. It’s packed with black berry fruits and exotic herbs. The solid mid palate lends complexity and richness with toasty charred oak, vanilla and nutty spice. The tannins are fine grained, long and dry complimenting the rich dark chocolate and savoury characters of smoky bacon.
Enjoy this intensely flavoured wine with a rare rib eye steak or continental smoked sausage. After dinner it’s ideal with a selection farmhouse cheeses, nuts and dried fruits.
This is a powerful Cabernet that will reward extended cellaring. The rich flavours will become more rounded and bottle age will add complexity and sophistication
