Cartlidge and Browne Cabernet Sauvignon North Coast
Grapes: Cabernet Sauvignon 88%, Merlot, Petit Verdot
This is a classic Californian Cabernet. The nose reveals a cornucopia of fruit and invites serious attention; plum, blackberries and cherry pie notes coast alongside a savoury edge of dried herbs and dusty tannins. The best part is yet to come with the mouth-filling, velvety textured, lingering finish.
Grapes are sourced from across the region from the best vineyards, some with powerful tannins, others that will lend bold dark fruit notes, giving the flexibility to produce wine that is round, integrated and robust on the palate. The grapes were harvested at optimal ripeness for a lengthy fermentation to extract deliciously balanced flavours. The wine was aged for 8 months in French and American oak
This is capable of pairing with a juicy grilled rib eye, lamb chops, or even pasta with sausage and mushrooms.
