100% Cabernet Sauvignon
13% by volume
Deep red. A very youthful wine at this stage, showing powerful aromas of raspberry and cranberry. Very fruity. The flavors are reminiscent of the nose with a touch of pepper. Ample tannin and acid with a medium weight will allow very positive and excellent development potential.
