“Cabernet Sauvignon’s vibrant red fruit and cassis aromas combine with the plum and vanilla under-tones of Merlot. Hints of tobacco leaf and bell pepper from the Cabernet Franc round out a complex nose. The full bodied palate is abundant with blackberry fruit and dark peppermint chocolate. Finely grained soft tannins enhance a richly textured and extended finish. ”
Paired well with meals including an element of charring or spice to offset the sweetness and tannins. Red meats with seasoning that tend to compliment are garlic, rosemary, mint and porcini (dried mushrooms).
