Bon Courage Cabernet Sauvignon 2003

A classic red from a noble cultivar; this comlex wine features rich flavours of fresh berries and a slight nuttiness. It is a finely balanced wine to suit every discerning palate and will gain a more velvet feel with another two years of careful cellaring.

It calls for good quality meat dishes including steak, stews or a roast and can be enjoyed with a selection of cheeses.
