Simonsig Cabernet Sauvignon 1996

A deep purple red colour with brick edges. The intense nose of red berries, black currant and carnations, enchanted by subtle wood flavours (20 months in French Oak) gives the wine a great complexity. Soft tannins and a long aftertaste emphasise the rich fruit and potential of this vintage.
The big innovation for 1996 is the branding of the vintage on the head of the corks.
