2000 Cabernet Sauvignon – Cabernet Chocolate and Marzipan Tart

2000 Cabernet Sauvignon – The 2000 Cabernet Sauvignon has spicy aromas with layers of complexity: Cherry, cedar, eucalyptus with dried herbs and pepper dominate the nose. Plum and cassis fruit are on the palate framed by firm tannins and a dark chocolate taste linger in the finish. The wine is approachable, round and concentrated.
