Tasting Notes
This Wine is made from one clone of Cabernet Sauvignon planted on Edgebaston. The wine displays Cabernet Sauvignon cassis and blackcurrant fruit on the nose as well as having a fresh minty, herbaceous ness backed by mocha vanilla. A broad midpalate and long lasting flavours of Boysenberry and hints of sweet Mulberry follow through to join with the fresh Vanilla and Nutmeg spice on the finish. Firm structured tannins and a long finish on the palate show great ageing potential.
