Van Loveren Cramond Cabernet Sauvignon/Merlot 2012

A powerful blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot. The wine gained elegant Christmas pudding and tobacco notes from 15 months maturation in 100% French Oak barrels. Beautiful aromas of Cigar box, dark chocolate, eucalyptus and mint, together with the smoothness of the Merlot ensure a complex full bodied red.

Lamb with rosemary and garlic, venison, turkey, Irish stew, rare roast beef or roast chicken.
