Technical Data: Cabernet Sauvignon 52%, Shiraz 32%, Merlot 16%. Ten months of French and American oak maturation. The three cultivars were vinified separately for eight months, followed by two months of blending prior to bottling.
Description: Dark ruby red dress. This wine shows initial oak, spice and pepper aromas which on the second whiff gives way to ripe dark morello cherries. Nicely balanced wine with a good structure thru and thru, supple velvety tannins and rich enticing flavors including leather, morello cherries, plum, pepper, spice and oak. Lengthy, smooth finish.
Food Pairing & Service: Bold enough to stand a steak or ribs, Yum! The wine will easily mature and soften beautifully over the next 3 to 4 coming years.
Score: 8/10. Great find for the price, don't hesitate, try this on!
