A vibrant, deep purple colour leads to lifted blackberry, dark chocolate aromas with hints of mint and vanilla. The wine is full-bodied showing generous, berry fruit characters with spicy notes. The palate has good length and well structured with toasty oak and soft velvety tannins prominent on the finish. Cabernet Sauvignon pairs nicely with foods high in fat and protein, including steak, duck, and game. It's a great complement to hearty stews, ribs, and dark, rich sauces.
