7 things you might not know about Cabernet Sauvignon >>

It retails for $18 and they recommend matching it with rich meat dishes such as braised lamb with creamy mashed potato. Yum! We enjoyed it with our bbq dinner which featured lots of delicious meat.

In the glass, it’s a gorgeous juicy deep red colour. In fact, I’d love nail polish in this exact colour please! On the nose, it makes me think of fresh blue and blackberries with a mug of mocha on the side. While in the mouth it’s juicy, fresh and easy drinking. Super well rounded and silky. Great bbq wine!
