Cabernet sauvignon is a red wine varietal and deemed to be one of the world’s most popular varietal. It’s grown on almost all wine regions, notably Bordeaux, Australia, Napa Valley to South Africa. In general Cabernet Sauvignon is considered dry and full bodied.
This is a bright and intensely red Cabernet Merlot whose colour speaks of its fresh and fruity aromas. Hints of black plums combine beautifully with those of ripe berries and a touch of vanilla. The palate is soft, but full with a pleasant finish. Serve with red meats or cheese.
The bright, supple fruit core of rich mulberry carries from the nose, with intriguing violet, earth and leafy characters. Lovely plum notes on the mid-palate thanks to the contribution of the Merlot. Medium-bodied, with great length and balance.
A seamless palate with endless length of flavor – medium bodied in style typical of Bordeaux blends out of the region but with driving flavor and a vibrant refreshing palate and tight tannin kick critical to our Cabernet driven style.
