Blend of 67% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc. Warwick's flagship Estate Reserve is an opulent, full-bodied wine with rich, concentrated berry fruit, silky mouth-filling flavors, polished tannins and a lingering finish. Skillful barrel ageing gives Trilogy excellent maturation potential. Decanting is recommended to maximize enjoyment of this classically styled, handcrafted wine. Warwick Estate is on the premium red wine slopes of the Simonsberg Mountain, near Stellenbosch. Established in 1770, the winemaking tradition was revived in 1964 by the Ratcliffe family.
"Loaded with red currant, plum, cocoa and brier flavors, this distinctive wine also unfurls spice, mineral and suave toast elements before gliding to a precise and harmonious finish. Finely crafted. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2005."
This vintage was very poor in comparison to the 2003 and to a lesser extent the 2005. I was very disappointed.
