Louisvale Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve 1999

This is a small parcel selected from Louisvale’s best Cabernet Sauvignon in the 1999 vintage. Deepish garnet in appearance. Very lifted on the nose, showing aromas of mint, cassis and blackberry. Lush and ripe on the palate, but with a good grip of chunky tannins. Long savoury finish.
