Product Description

A blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% each of Merlot and Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot; it is matured for 36 months in 100% new French barriques, bottled unfiltered and unfined and aged in bottle before release. Dark garnet red, this exemplary Cabernet Sauvignon is more claret that Bordeaux; the only difference being the very subtle eucalypt accent. The warmer 2008 vintage shows in the dried red and dark berry fruits, cigar tobacco, cedar and sandalwood, and roasted beef fillet aromas. Its complexity is easily comparable to its French peers. As it sits in the glass, it becomes fresher and more vibrant with primary fruit and dried florals/pot pourri emerging. The medium-bodied palate actually shows a lot more youth than the aromas. Bright red and black currant, wild blackberry, succulent natural acidity, fragrant spice and cigar box; then a wave of mouth-watering powdery tannins that combine with the acidity in a rich flavourful finish for days. Bravo Peter Althaus!
