A blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Syrah, 5% Carmenere and 2% Cabernet Franc.
Color: Clean ruby red with purple shadows.
Nose: Expressive aromas with ripe red fruits like plums, dry figs and notes of black spices.
Mouth: The palate is elegant, supported by a soft structure with fine and delicate tannins. Nice persistence.
Service and Food Pairing: Open and leave to breathe minimum for an hour and serve at 16-18°C. Ideal companion of all red meat, winter soups and of course Barbecue!
absolutely horrible......bitter and never opened up at all ~!!!!
Fruity and sweet with a slightly earthy background to the nose. After an hour at room temperature in a decanter I find this wine to have a light sweet tasting start followed by a fairly bold earthy base finishing with a slightly acidic mix of fruit that doesn't dissapear too quickly
I would have labeled this "Smooth and Supple", not "Big and Bold". This is a very nice Cab blend, for the price. The nose is clean fruit - not overpowering. On the palate, I found a nice balance of tannins and acidity. If you let it open up for an hour (in a decanter), you'll be rewarded with a long finish with slight earth tones. I only gave it three stars because I personally prefer a bigger Cab, but if you are in the market for a smooth, easy drinking-ready now Cab., all at a very reasonable price - look no further.
