Oldenburg Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

The wine has a dark, inky, garnet colour, with immediate blackcurrant perfume on the nose. The oaking on this wine reveals itself as cigar box and pencil shavings with slight coconut qualities. The blackcurrant flavours combine with cassis and plum notes to produce a fleshy, fruit driven palate within a framework woven with definitive, but smooth muscular tannins. This Cabernet Sauvignon is a magnificent full bodied wine with a complex mid-palate and plush velvety finish.

This wine is meant for a choice steak as accompaniment.
