Small Lot Reds
2012 Small Lot Cabernet Sauvignon
$45.00 per bottle
Our full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon was hand-picked from our estate vineyard, fermented in open top wooden fermenters, and aged fro 20 months in French and American oak. The deep garnet colour temps your senses with a rich bouquet of black currant, eucalyptus, black licorice and notes of roasted, toasty oak. Fruit flavours of blackberry and black currant are accented by notes of leather and spice on the palate. Juicy blackberry and currant with a touch of vanilla, cocoa and almond linger on the finish.
This wine will age gracefully through to 2022. Winemaker Emma Garner recommends decanting if enjoying through 2016.
Pair with grilled red meats, leg of lamb, braised meats, winter stews, and 2 to 3 year old Canadian cheddar.
