Deep, intense red in color, this Cabernet Sauvignon has complex and intense aromas of dark fruit– such as blueberries, cassis, and blackberries– that lend tremendous typicity and are complemented by a touch of dark chocolate. On the palate, this Cabernet is mouth-filling and highly concentrated with firm, ripe tannins and persistent fruit on the finish.
"A broad, fleshy style, with macerated currant, cedar, coffee and loam notes wrapped up by a layer of polished toast. Drink now. 9,000 cases made."
"Santa Ema's entry level wines were generally uninspiring except for the following two offerings The 2006 Amplus Cabernet Sauvignon was aged for 12 months in barrique. Purple-colored, it has an alluring nose of spice box, black currants, blackberry, and a suggestion of chocolate in the background. Smooth-textured, forward, and easy-going, this nicely balanced wine has a lengthy, fruit-filled finish. Drink this excellent value over the next five years."
