CARTEL 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Padthaway – 6 Pack
Deep cherry red with a crimson hue.
Rich, attractive aromas of mint leaf, red currant, blackberry and well integrated delicate oak contributing some vanillin and cedar nuances. Expect to see some development of cigar box and leather characters with age.
Typical of the region, the 2012 Cartel Padthaway Cabernet Sauvignon has rich, ripe berry and minty leaf characters that are well integrated with fine vanillin oak notes. Firm velvety tannins give length and structure creating a wonderful lingering mouthfeel. This wine can be enjoyed now, but will also reward extended cellaring.
