WINEMAKER'S TASTING NOTES:
A deep and dark colour that is scarlet with violet tinges as the wine curls up the glass. The Cabernet Sauvignon in 2012 had a quality during vinification that was reminiscent of great Napa Valley Cabernets and expresses notes of cassis, licorice and black plums. The wine shows depth of tannin and structure across the entire palate with the promise to evolve into a layered and complex wine in the cellar. The wine finishes with great length that carries notes of chocolate, cloves and baking spices. An exciting wine to drink in its youth, it will most certainly give "Great Rewards‚Äö√Ñ√∂‚àö√ë‚àöœÄ to those who cellar it for the long haul.
ENJOY FROM: 4-15+ years from vintage
