Attractive deep purple, magenta color, this Cabernet’s aroma has room filing capabilities. Deep layers of berry flavors with nuances of rose petal and herbs. A marvelous mouth feel, round, very smooth, well balanced with soft tannins.
A lingering finish of caramel and brandy cherry. Pairs well with roasted meats and full flavored fish seasoned with Mediterranean herbs. Try with lamb laced with rosemary and garlic or branzino stuffed with mint and roasted in rock salt.
