Brampton Cabernet Sauvignon 2005

Old Mutual Trophy Wine Show 2007 - Gold Medal (93/100)
2007 International Wine Challenge - Silver Medal
A wine of outstanding quality and character. Deep purple, black hues and dark edges indicative of good extraction and ripeness. The aromas are complex and continually evolve in the glass. Initially sweet black fruit such as dark cherries, plums and hints of cassis, which are interwoven with subtle oak aromas of vanilla, toffee and treacle. Prodigiously ripe fruit dominate the palate. A firm tannin structure is balanced with delicious sweetness.
