De Trafford Cabernet Sauvignon

87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Frank, 3% Petit Verdot

Medium deep, dark red colour. Red & blue berry nose with attractive cedary, spicy oak and fruit aromas. Softly tannic palate hiding a lot of fine fruit that opens up in the glass. Softer, more elegant and finer than most vintages, a little less intensity and long term ageability.

Delicious with most meat dishes, especially roast lamb.
