Eikendal Cabernet Sauvignon / Merlot 2011

Eikendal Cabernet Sauvignon / Merlot 2011

The wine has a deep red colour with some tawny development. It is very expressive with ripe blackberry and blackcurrant characters dominating the nose. The characteristic cassis and earthiness of Cabernet Sauvignon is clearly evident. Spicy and sweet French oak complement and balance the fruit. Fleshy and concentrated fruit is supported by a backbone of fine-grained tannins. The ripeness of the fruit is reflected in a sweet and long finish.
