Violets, mint and dark fruit aromas on the nose. The palate is well rounded with blackberry and cherry fruit flavours complemented by soft, ripe tannins. A juicy, concentrated wine with an elegant finish.

This Cabernet Sauvignon is the ideal wine to serve with a slow roasted succulent leg of Karoo lamb.
