Availability: In stock

Tormentoso, a blend of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon and 13% Merlot aged half and half in wood and tank. The wine has an appealing nose of licorice, tobacco leaf, new saddle leather and a touch of wood as well as red and black currants in a medium-bodied, supple style.

A classic style of Cabernet that is ready to drink now, but would reward a few years of ageing.

“The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon is blended with 14% Merlot. It is a little subdued on the nose with dusky blackberry and briary aromas, sutured with undergrowth and autumnal scents. The palate is medium-bodied with a soft, quite fleshy opening. The acidity here is well judged amd the finish rounded and sensual with a dash of ginger right on the aftertaste. Very fine."
