TASTING NOTES: This Cabernet Sauvignon-driven blend shows black currant, dark chocolate and graphite on the nose, while generous use of new oak adds cinnamon and cedarwood aromas to the nose. On the palate, the wine shows beautiful intensity and the time in barrel adds a hint of vanilla to palate. Firm tannins promise good ageing potential.
