Great Cabernet should be both perfumed and poised and meticulous site selection is critical to achieving these key attributes.
Appearance: dark ruby.
Aroma: Young, powerful and deliously ripe.
Palate: A rich, lush wine of abundant fruits - red currants, mulberries, plums, blackberries, blueberries and cassis, this ambling fruit richness is complimented by plentiful ripe fruit tannins and the finest grained French oak. A wine of great proportion, enjoyable now and worthy of cellaring for the medium to long term.
Food Ideas: Barbecued veal rack or Manchego
