Tasting Notes

Fairbairn Capital Trophy Wine Show 2003 - Bronze
A modern styled Cabernet with intense yet supple fruit flavours. Rich ruby red. Concentrated plum and blackcurrant nose with cedar aromas. A chewy mouthful packed with forest-floor berry fruit and tobacco spice for interest. Enduring tail. Holds fruit at least five years from harvest.
