Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

The nose is elegant with spicy tones and underlying black fruit. The palate is juicy and full of deliciously dark fruit, black currents and a subtle cinnamon background. Good balance between structure and finesse on the palate. The wine will benefit from a few years of ageing. Decant before serving.

Watsonia alba is a very striking plant, with attractive foliage and gorgeous spikes of cup-shaped white flowers. Our Cabernet Sauvignon is a very pure and powerful wine much like the Watsonia alba.
