Winemaker's Notes:

Blend: 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc, 2% Shiraz, 1% Merlot

Dense purple in color with sweet mulberry fruits and smoky oak aromas. The increased Victorian component contributing characteristic minty flavours and enhancing structure. Medium to full bodied in palate weight displaying firm tannins and a savory finish.

An ideal accompaniment to red meat and premium cuts of prime beef. Will continue to improve over the next 2-4 years.

My Notes:

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."
