Dedication Cabernet Sauvignon 1.5L

2016 Dedication Cabernet Sauvignon Tasting Note

Aromas of black fruit, notably cherry, lead into a viscous, textured wine with flavors of blackberry, fresh sweet tobacco, fruit leather and black pepper. Bright acid with a low pH gives this wine a long finish of toasted oak, vanilla and berry compote. This full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon pairs perfectly with rare steaks, hearty beef stews and braised lamb or pork shank. Crafted as a cellar-worthy wine; enjoy now or cellar for up to ten years.
