This full-bodied and fruity Cabernet Sauvignon from Sprucewood Shores Estate Winery is winning the race to our taste buds as our favourite red of 2006! Barrel ageing in Hungarian and French oak for eighteen months has softened this Cabs tannins and added plenty of complexity to the wine, while still leaving a clean and dry finish. Expect aromas of cherry, black raspberry and currants. Enjoy this wine now or lay down for another 5 years. This wine will surely compliment your favourite cut of peppercorn steak or a decadent rich chocolate treat…which leads us to this…
