Adelaida Viking Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2019
Boasting a deep and concentrated ruby appearance, the bouquet shows classic Viking vineyard aromas with the high-toned perfume leading with violets, blackberries, and exotic baking spices. Secondary notes of graphite, cedar, and balsam wood are all framed and lifted by oak and vanilla notes introduced through a combination of high quality French barrels. This vintage delivers a decadent, full-bodied wine that is as vibrant and lively as it is rich and intense. Limestone-derived chalky tannins cry out for sumptuous food and will keep the wine fresh for ages. Enjoy now for grip, structure, and intensity, or hold for new complexities to evolve.
Pair with hanger steak with Chinese five-spice rub or pepper crusted tuna.
