Villion Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Sold Out, new vintage to be released soon

Attractive, deep crimson with a pitch-dark epicentre and youthful purple rim.

Tasting Notes

Playful flavour of primary berry fruit on entry, the striking cassis flavour blends in with the layers of dark cherries and black currants. Fruit dominates with a sneaky hint of cinnamon and roasted almonds.

On the palate, this lively and young Cabernet shows true texture of cocoa and dark chocolate, with a smooth, almost sweet coating of red cherries. Delightful textured mouthfeel with a never-ending finish.
