Waterford Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

Intense aroma of Cedar wood, cigarbox and cassis, the palate is tighly structured with a classic dry Cabernet Sauvignon finish. The 2008 vintage shows a lightness in extract with a fresh midpalate, a vintage that will age gracefully, yet can be appreciated in youth.
