SOLD OUT

Backsberg Cabernet Sauvignon 1997

Medium depth of bright, ruby red colour, with tinges of blue. Absolute " copybook" Cabernet Sauvignon nose. Deep sweet essence of cassis, cherry and ripe plum with hint of oak on the nose. All carries through to the palate with addition of coffee bean and hint of green pepper. Silky mouthfeel with sweet elegance on supple tannins. Well managed oak with long fruity finish. Easy to drink now but will well reward some patient bottle development.
