DCV Cabernet Sauvignon 2005 - Half Bottle

This Gold Medal winning wine has rich and deep fruit on the nose, presented in a svelte, pure, dark fashion, along with a layer of creamy French oak.

The palate has a similarly pure character, with a silky composition and an elegant style. Pure fruit, with rising tannins in the mid-palate, this wine is structured but with its own deep character. The tannins are exquisitely integrated and there is a great harmony throughout.

This is the chameleon wine, silky smooth but when paired with strong food like blue cheese it will show its Cabernet dominance immediately in such a stunning way thus lending itself to food experimentation.

Naturally it will work with most steak combinations, as long as there is not too much pepper. Try it with brown gravy, roasted chicken, veal cutlets or even Chicken Cordon Bleu.
