Drostdy Hof Cabernet Sauvignon 1998

On the nose the wine displays aromas of strawberry and stewed fruit. A touch of vanilla and truffel aromas contribute to the complexity of the wine. On the palate it is medium-bodied with berry flavours and a touch of nuttiness. The tannins are soft and the wine has a fruity finish.
