The Soldier Cabernet Sauvignon - 750ML
This Cabernet Sauvignon has a reddish black center with crimson edges. It has aromas of just ripe blackberry and cassis with secondary notes of tobacco leaf and leather. There are flavors of plum and cassis, structured by hints of ground coffee, clove and anise. The wine has a fleshy mouthfeel and well integrated tannins, held together by pleasant acidity and a lengthy finish.
The Soldier has a brooding dark garnet color with brick red edges. There are aromas of baked blueberry pie, cocoa powder and plum with savory nuances like fresh sage, tobacco leaf and ground coffee. Immediate fruit flavors like dark cherry and currant are accentuated by clove, sage and toasty oak. This is a big wine with tannin that turns from chewy to dusty through the mid-palate. Bright and balanced acidity leads to a complex and structured finish. Drinking beautifully now and has terrific cellaring potential.
