About the wine

Warming and balanced from Sam the Man
  • Get ready for a full bodied and ripe red wine with some grippy tannins typical of Cabernet. An impressive drop that is well balanced, you'll have envious friends wanting to try a glass!
  • This wine is quite intensely perfumed and for Sam, big flavour is an indicator of high quality.
  • Think Blackcurrant with some menthol and eucalyptus notes. Chocolaty oak is also evident on the nose. This wine is quite simply moreish!

Best before
Cabernet is naturally long lived because it has quite high levels of tannin which are a natural preservative. The structure of this wine with fresh acid and some of that drying Cabernet tannin, plus that it has lots of flavour makes me think it will evolve for 5 or more years. But the lovely primary fruit also makes it a terrific drink now in its youth.

Serving advice
Serve at 16-18C

Food match
This is a pretty versatile red, and would go well with a wide range of red meats, and hard cheese. But to pick just one dish, I'd go for roast lamb. That suggestion of a herbal leafy note in the wine will be like the sprig of rosemary Mum sometimes puts with roast lamb. Delicious!
