Delheim Cabernet Sauvignon 2002

Medium-bodied with cassis and mint, followed by subtle cinnamon-like nuances. The careful maturation in French oak barrels, resulted in a firm, dry tannin structure. This will ensure that the wine will age up to 5 years from vintage.

Enjoy with roast dishes such as duck, lamb and beef.
