Cabernet Sauvignon
2014
2014

This Cabernet Sauvignon from the Western Cape region of South Africa is a juicy wine that makes no demands and delivers plenty of flavor, plush texture and grippy tannins. The fruit for this wine was specially chosen from selected sites in the Western Cape area known for warm days and cool nights to achieve an optimal ripeness with beautiful acidity.

The package is a renegade, departing from the norm to drive consumer interest on the shelf, at the table and via social media. The uniquely delicious wines in designer bottles offer consumers a perfect wine for both sharing and "upcycling.” www.proteawinesusa.com

Wine Notes
Color
Deep ruby
Aroma
Blackberry, espresso and spice.
Taste
The palate is rich, supple and rounded with layers of cocoa, cigars, fruitcake and black berries. While juicy and drinkable, it’s textured, with lovely ripeness. It’s poised and integrated with a long, pleasant finish.
