Aromas of sweet vanilla and allspice, followed by black currants, ripe plums and a savory hint of anise seed
The palate has a smooth entry, building to a big, full mouthfeel with firm tannins a juicy, crisp acidity. Dark fruits flood the mid-palate in waves of blackberry and cassis. The finish is pleasantly dry and slightly spicy.

Steak-frites, or a good old-fashioned juicy hamburger will be excellent companions for this big red wine. If meat isn’t for you, this Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon will also pair beautifully with a rich wild mushroom risotto.
