R495.00R660.00

Clear

A three barrel limited release of Cabernet Sauvignon. A dark, full-bodied wine with cinnamon, pencil shaving and redcurrant aromas. Opulent and rich flavours of cassis, blueberries and liquorice heighten the senses. A wine with velvety tannins and a long lingering finish. An intense expression of single varietal Cabernet sauvignon. Decanting recommended.
