Winemaker's Notes:

Intense color with bright purple hues. Dense sweet black fruits with rich dark chocolate and vanillin smoky oak aromas, intermixed with a herbal spiciness and classic cabernet characters. Substantial palate weight characterised by fine grained tannins and a bold savoury masculine finish. An ideal accompaniment to red meat and premium cuts of prime beef. Will continue to improve over the next 4-6 years.

About Angus The Bull:

"The philosophy behind Angus The Bull is to create a unique and innovative wine that provides an ideal accompaniment to prime beef. Each year the most promising parcels are hand selected and blended from premium Cabernet Sauvignon grapes sourced from a number of outstanding wine regions across Victoria and South Australia. The flexibility of this multi-regional blending approach provides for great consistency from vintage to vintage and allows for the best attributes of individual regions to be combined for exceptional results."
