Cabernet Sauvignon - The Emperor of Red

Time

18:00

Place

Vessel Tasting Room - The Cru's Nest
1609 Fort Street
Victoria, British Columbia

The Cabernet Sauvignon grape makes more great wines! Some of these wines are blends of Cabernet Sauvignon with Merlot or other grape varieties. Young cabernets are intensely coloured, with a very deep ruby that can include a variety of night shades of blue, black and purple. An intense nose, aromas of fresh blackcurrant, chocolate, and cedar. Dry and rich. But an older cabernet is more nuanced. Powerful and concentrated and will be enjoyable for years. Mitch Renaud, from Vessel will lead us through our tasting. Wines:

C261 Lot 9881 Butterfly Ridge Cabernet Sauvignon, Central Coast, 2017

C254 Lot 9434 Warwick First Lady Cabernet Sauvignon, Western Cape, 2016,
