Cabernet Sauvignon from Spain

Item No. 96950
  • red wine

Winemaker's Notes

Bright and clear, with medium-high depth. Cherry-black colour with bluish iridescence. Marked and tinted glycerol tears. Aromas very typical from this variety, with balsamic and spiced hints from the cabernet but with the signature of Finca Antigua, nuances of dairy and undergrowth, indicating the freshness we obtain due to the altitude of the estate. Robust, with a lot of backbone initially unfolding a full-bodied sensation horizontally and vertically. Certain grape tannins provide fleshiness and above all a great freshess that cleans the palate. The oak coming through after with a long and persistent finish.

Aged sheep and goats milk cheeses are two great cheese pairings for this wine. It is a good accompaniment to red meats and lamb. Ideal for big game dishes such as venison, chamois or casseroled wild boar. It enhances the Madrid one-pot pulse and meat dishes
