2012 Semper Fidelis Cabernet Sauvignon
A deep red with a vibrant hue, this wine reflects complex aromas of rich dark fruits such as blackcurrants, menthol and spiced plums accompanied by a hint of cigar box and cedar.
A seamless marriage of the 1891 Ancestor Cabernet Sauvignon vines and the elegance of French oak puncheons has given birth to this graceful wine.
Tight yet refined fruit tannins provide a path to take your senses on a journey of forest fruits harmonised with rich oak providing your palate with the satisfaction of a lengthy finish and lingering flavours.
