Allee Bleue Cabernet Sauvignon / Merlot 2009

A deep ruby red colour. Powerful aromas of fresh mint,fynbos and lead pencil. This is followed by a luscious red berries, savoury cloves and delicate chocolate flavours. The palate is full of structure and elegance. All these components are beautifully enfolded in supple tannins.

Springbok or Venison lion grilled to perfection served with roasted vegetables and a delectable garlic and chilly butter. Also great with duck confit.
