A classic Cabernet with ripe blackberry richness. Dense dark ruby red/black colour with ripe cassis and toasty oak on the nose. Chocolate and black-current fruit flavours mingle with the spicy aroma. Full flavoured palate and firm structure. Supple, yet complex. Well integrated with a generous long finish.
