A an inky garnet and purple colour shows in the glass from the high concentration of Cabernet Sauvignon. The nose displays fruit intensity and depth with aromas of blackberry, currants, chocolate and savoury hints. The restrained use of oak lends structure and tight integration to this wine while it remains youthful. A palate that is rich and broad with notes of graphite, a hint of cedar and a long and defined finish bodes well for
extended cellar aging.

Woodfired Eye Fillet, mushroom risotto, grilled sweet peppers, and soft French Farmhouse
style cheese.
