Oldenburg Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

Oldenburg Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

The Cabernet Sauvignon has vibrant ruby red hues with opulent aromas of black current, pencil shavings and cedar wood, backed by subtle mint undertones. The entry is full and rich on the pallet with firm but ripe tannins. It is big in structure but a good balance between oak and fruit lends a touch of elegance to this powerful wine. Persistent blue berry flavours on the finish.

This wine is meant for a choice steak as accompaniment.
