Format: 750 mL

Alcohol: 13.5% Alcohol/Vol.
A rich and savoury Cab
Description: Opaque ruby in colour with a medium+ nose. This complex wine features cedar, pine, dark cherry, plum, blackcurrant, blueberry, tamarind, eucalyptus, cassis, espresso, tobacco leaves, turmeric, pencil shavings and leather. Full body average with green tannins, good acidity and a long length.
Negatives: Some heat from the 13.5% alcohol
Interesting Note: Needs decanting to enjoy now on its own, but better if paired with high protein foods that can break down the tannin. I found the 2008, reviewed by me on my site, far better.
Drink now or in the next 10 years on its own or pair it with Slow Roasted Beef Tenderloin.
