Le Bonheur Cabernet Sauvignon 2001

Colour: Dark ruby.
Bouquet: Aromas of cigar box, raspberry, blackcurrant and red berry fruits, supported by delicate vanilla oak.
Taste: Lead pencil shavings, pine needles and forest floor. Tannins are soft and add good structure to a wine with a long finish.

Serve with any red meat dish. Enjoy on its own with mature, hard, yellow cheeses that also comes to mind.

about the harvest: Grapes were hand-picked at 24° Balling and hand-sorted.
