Tasting notes

This cabernet sauvignon shows some small signs of ageing with some brown colours on the edge. Smoky and spicy, there’s quite a lot of alcohol that comes through as you breathe it in. No wonder at 15% alcohol! It’s strong and full of tannins. It’s a good attempt, nothing spectacular though.
