Deep coloured and full-bodied Cabernet (with some “Bordeaux varieties” blended into it – I think mostly Merlot, given the deep colour). Vegetably minty aromas over the classic dark fruit, but particularly chocolatey and coffee warm aromas developed on breathing, and the wine went well with dark chocolate, in fact. Quite rich flavour, but with soft tannin that indicates a ready-to-drink wine. Looking forward to exploring US wines with new flatmate, whose gift this was!
