Avontuur Cabernet Sauvignon 1999

Youthful purple colour with opulent aromas of cigar boxes, plums, blackberries and touches of prune. Delicious warm chocolate wrapped around silky tannins, mulberry fruit and toasted coffee bean on the palate. Good twist of pepper mill and attractive char-oak/vanilla in a long concentrated finish.
