2014 MJW Cabernet Sauvignon
Complex aromas of red and dark berry fruits with hints of violets, dark chocolate, earth and cedar.
A medium bodied wine comprising a core of vibrant sweet red and black berry fruit, with regional earthy, gravelly nuances contributing a nice savoury textural element to the wine. Hints of cedar and dark chocolate add further complexity and allure.Supported by fine-grained tannins and seamlessly integrated French oak, the wine displays a perfect balance of aroma, flavour and structure which will ensure great longevity.
Match with exceptional cuts of marbled beef such as fillet or hanger steak, or long-cook fattier meats and glaze for extra richness.
