Nose:  shows upfront cassis, red cherries and raspberries, with an intriguing whiff of sweet spice, liquorice and vanilla from the wood ageing.
Palate: A full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon with red fruit following through from the nose and fresh herbs on the finish. Grippy tannins give the wine backbone and leaves the taster with a well-balanced experience. Good ageing potential.

Fillet or Rump steak with a red wine reduction or any other full-flavoured red meat dish.
