Natalie's Score: 89/100An amazing wine for the price point! Full-bodied, rich and layered as you would expect from a $25 wine. Aromas of fleshy ripe black plum and blackberry. Perfect for potluck gatherings and movie night.
Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: red meats, pork, ripe cheese and pasta. Heavenly Hamburger Wine

|Fermented with selected yeasts at temperatures between 25° and 28°C with high|
color extraction at the beginning of the this process. This was followed by fermentation at a lower temperature so as to ensure a different extraction of the skin components. A long post maceration at low temperatures assured an adequate extraction for the ageing of the wine.
60% of the wine was aged in a combination of American oak barrels for 8 months.
The remaining 40% was aged exclusively in stainless steel vats until bottling.
