Ageing? Drink over two years

"A killer value Cabernet that delivers a plethora of flavour.
Outstanding colour saturation for a red at this price point displaying a totally opaque inky black dark red core and deep dark red black hue. Aromas of blackcurrant and mulberry intermingle with a hint of mint followed by some subtle cedar. Although youthful, the palate delivers amazing palate presence for its miserly price with rich mouthfilling flavours of blackcurrant, ripe dark mulberry, a touch of mint and subtle spicy cedar. Fine grained tannins with just enough grip to assert themselves and provide some structure. Medium to long ripe blackcurrant, light mint and spicy cedar aftertaste."
