Backsberg Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

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 wine has depth and power and will reward further bottle ageing.

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