This fascinating Cabernet will reveal an expressive fruit character, but also display intriguing earthy and floral elements. Aromas of candied cherry, raspberry and rhubarb are very noticeable. It has definite nuances of cured meat, toasty oak and tobacco leaf. A surprising perfume of lavender brings life to the bouquet. Layers of red fruit will enhance the mid-palate, with bright acidity supporting the finish. A slight chalky sensation in the end of the palate is clear evidence of the ample yet managed tannin profile. This food-driven Cabernet will be the perfect companion when paired with smoked barbecued ribs, pine-infused pork sausage or grilled Portobello mushrooms with parmesan cheese. Enjoy!
