Medium to deep crimson in colour with purple hues. Rich, dark fruits of black currants and black berries dominate the aroma with lifted minty, menthol notes and biscuity hints. Luscious, ripe and juicy berry fruits coat the palate and mingle with brambly spice, hints of black olive and velvety, fine tannins which flow onto the long and fruitful finish.
"Deep garnet with a purple rim, the 2010 Blacksmith Cabernet Sauvignon opens with wonderfully intense, slowly evolving notes of creme de cassis, dried plums and menthol over hints of cigar boxes, cinnamon stick, dried herbs and potpourri. Medium to full-bodied with mouth-filling black fruit preserves and baking spice flavors, it has a medium level of fine-grained tannins, refreshing acid and a finish with very good length."
