Broken Stone Cabernet Sauvignon/Shiraz 1999

Brilliant ruby red colour. This wine has a nicely balanced nose of spicy Shiraz and fruity Cabernet with neither dominating. After ageing for 15 months in wood this wine developed a very soft tannic structure which makes this wine enjoyable from an early stage.
