Villion Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Tasting Notes

Enticing entry of dark berry fruit compote, layered with paprika spice and sweet, cigar box aromas. Hints of cassis complete this well-balanced Cabernet with a perfectly judged oak contribution.

Medium to full bodied in style with a delightful mouth-filling intensity. Gentle but firm with a prolonged finish of red berry fruit and enticing, sweet spice. Accommodating texture of cacao. Confident and elegant, the reflection of a true classic.
