Backsberg Cabernet Sauvignon 2005

Spicy aromas of liquorice and vanilla mingled with blackcurrant fruit. Layers of fruit and oak tannins provide the necessary framework for ripe full fruit flavours of plum and blackberry. Complex and long, this Cabernet Sauvignon has depth and power and will reward further bottle ageing under cellar conditions.

A classic Cape Cabernet that will compliment all meals when a fine red wine is called for, or to end off an evening with rich cheeses.
