Cabernet Sauvignon (2007)

R95.00

A modern Cabernet, higher alcohols, smooth tannins, but still a wine with huge potential and absolute value for money. Herbaceous nose with aromas of mint, red cherries and cassis. A dry entry becoming smoother and creamier to the finish. You might recognise flavours such as mulberries, milk chocolate and fruit cake.
