From the get go this Cab was awesome to work with! Really great aromas developed at the beginning of fermentation and continued to progress. With oak influence the aromas and structure of the wine developed. Beautiful dark fruit aromas and flavours are balanced by the vanilla and cocoa from the oak.  A great dry wine with residual sugar at 5g/L
