Full-flavoured Cabernet sourced from mid to upper valley sub-appellations and Atlas Peak. 7,2% Merlot was added, 17+ months oak maturation, 75% of the barrels was French and 30% new. 2019 offers exceptional fruit with bright acidity, ample texture resulting in an approachable Cab, with aromas of black cherry, raspberry and notes of cedar. Intense fruit, integrated tannins with a balanced acidity and an elegant finish.
Serve with red meat, this type of Cabernet loves a seasoning with garlic, rosemary and/or porcini (dried mushrooms). Partners well with roast or grilled lamb, slow-braised beef or venison. Fashionable ox cheek dishes are also a good pairing - even a chilli con carne. Go vegan with big juicy Portobello mushrooms with butter and garlic.
