The Foreign Affair The Conspiracy Cabernet Sauvignon 2011 Wine Review
Natalie's Score: 89/100Full-bodied and smooth with dark fruit and a meaty, savoury mid-palate note. Nicely balanced. The winery concentrates the flavour of the cabernet sauvignon grapes by using the ripasso method traditionally used in Veneto, Italy: dried grapes add richness and depth to the wine. Mocha, dark chocolate and toasty oak on the finish.
Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: smoked meats, braised beef brisket, meaty pasta, mushroom risotto with Parmigiano-Reggiano. Best Beef Wine

|Heather Wall Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
An interesting wine. The winemakers use the traditional ripasso method used in Italy. Thses dried Cab Sauv grapes create a rich dark ruby colour, Full body. Round tannins. Plush notes of prune, raisin , dark cherry, plum, smoke spice. Brooding and smooth. Pair with an equally dark stranger!!
|Made using Veneto’s Ripasso method, this Cabernet Sauvignon displays aromas of fresh and dried cherry, plum, fig, sandalwood and spice that make for a fun and engaging nose. Structured and grounded with a leathery complexity interwoven with the dark fruit core. This has a long and drying finish. An easy candidate for 5+ years in the cellar, it will willingly collaborate on dinner tonight. Source: Vintages Wine Panel, April 2013|
