The colour is bright deep garnet with a little youthful purple around the edges.
The bouquet is composed of fragrant aromas of sweet currant fruit carried and lifted by a cedary oak underpinning but not over shadowing it.
Again currants are predominant on the palate with warm flavours of fine to medium texture. It fans out to a rich and quite voluminously fruity finish backed by gentle tannins.
The 1996 Art Series Cabernet reflects a cool dry year, quite delicate in comparison to the 1995 but still multi complexed by the presence of 8% Malbec, 3% Petit Verdot and 1% Merlot. Ready for drinking or cellar up to 5 years.
