Bradgate Red 1999

Ripe, blackbery flavours of Cabernet Sauvignon combined with the summer fruit flavours of Cabernet Franc and velvet-rich, plummy Merlot create a wine for immediate enjoyment. Maturation in French oak barriques adds smooth tannins and spiciness, gaining complexity with bottle maturation.
