2013 Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon Magnum
'13 Cabernet Magnum 1.5 Litre
Magnum bottle = 2 x 750 ml bottles. Characteristics are similar to the 750/standard bottle, however withholding more "fresh fruit" in the bottle for a longer period of time. On the nose, a healthy dose of ripe red berries. On the palate, it approaches as a denser, full wine; its bold structure is evident. Robust black currant, anise and coriander are balanced by notes of blood-orange zest and violets. Throughout, a graphite minerality adds to its layered complexity. The flavorful finish leaves lingering notes of vanilla balanced by delicate tannins. Pair with beef bourginon, horseradish-crusted pork loin, well-seasoned roasts, thick steaks.
