2010 Cabernet Sauvignon


Winemaker’s Tasting Notes
A deep dark red and classic Cabernet Sauvignon with notes of cassis and tabaco leaf on the nose. In the glass notes of dark chocolate and hints of mint emerge. The rich flavour on the tongue blends in well with the oak, fruit and acidity. A pleasant lingering aftertaste on the palate.
