Beautiful deep red color with perfumed aromas of ripe black cherries, strawberries and roasted cocoa beans. This wine is full-bodied and incredibly lush for a young Cabernet. It explodes on the palate with red and black fruits, then shows baking spices on its way to a mouthwatering finish. Pairs with a wide range of foods including beef, sausages, spiced or grilled pork, veal, rabbit, medium-strong cheeses, and meat-based pasta sauces.
"The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon contains 10% Merlot and was aged for 8 months in a mix of new French oak and second use American oak. Purple-colored, it reveals an excellent nose of cedar, spice box, cassis, and violets. Medium-bodied, on the palate it has plenty of sweet fruit and ripe tannin but is in need of a bit more depth and concentration. Drink it over the next 6 years."
