Trefethen Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve 6/750 2011
Cabernet Sauvignon produces wines of intensity and depth of flavour. Classically, these flavours are cassis, plum, black cherry and anise. Herb, olive, mint, tobacco and cedar are often associated with Cabernet Sauvignon wine, as well. If Merlot is a constituent in the wine these nuances are brought forward. The firm tannins of Cabernet often need some time to soften. This barrel aging this also lets the wine pickup character from the wood, usually vanilla and buttered toast.
Meat, meat, meat but especially lamb and beef. Game birds, duck, goose, squab. Anything with lots of rosemary.
