Sandalford Estate Reserve Margaret River Australia Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

A moderately austere, elegant Cabernet Sauvignon with red berry, floral and wild herb flavours. Juicy tannins give a drying finish while adding a little flesh to the wine. A serious Cabernet Sauvignon that needs to be enjoyed with food to show off its best features.
