Wine Review: This midnight purple colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Spottswoode opens with a black currant and black cherry bouquet with hints of violet, eucalyptus, and cigar box. On the palate, this wine is medium plus bodied with integrated medium acidity. The mouthfeel is well-balanced, finessed, velvety, and seamless. The flavor profile is black currant and blackberry blend with notes of stony minerality and black cherry. We also detected hints of black tea, oak, and black raspberry. The finish is dry, and its refined dusty mild tannins are sustained nicely before they drift off. The Tasting Panel would pair this Cabernet Sauvignon with Stuart's beef wellington. Enjoy - KWGTP
