Brampton Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

Brampton Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

Great ruby depth of colour with engaging dark chocolate, blackcurrant and spearmint aromas layered with brushes of cloves and other brown spice. Lovely rich well rounded tannins keep the core of this wine compact and seamlessly linked to a vibrantly balanced long savoury finish with mouth watering intense fruit flavours that beg for another sip.
