The nose is classic Cabernet Sauvignon from a cool region. Layers of intensely flavored ripe forest berries infused with tobacco leaf and cassis, with a hint of brooding cedar oak. The wine displays a fine expression of varietal definition from a challenging cool vintage that yields soft luscious tannins and a long fresh finish.
Ringbolt is made for immediate drinking though it will continue to gain complexity with cellaring for up to five years.
The wine would be well paired with flame grilled meats or Mediterranean cuisine.
