Light garnet-copper core; garnet-light orange rim with a pale meniscus. Lifted aromas of earth, dried red berries, orange peel, sweet spice on the nose. Tart, juicy, minerals, pink grapefruit, raspberries. Delicate with a light tannic grip. Medium acidity; medium to medium+ length. Still relatively unknown to most wine-drinking crowd, save for the winenuts. One of the very few red wines in the world which can complement Asian cuisine beautifully. Anyone who tries to tell me that (young) Cabernet Sauvignon is an excellent wine with chinese cuisine (especially the real kickass spicy stuff) is culturally insensitive at best, and clearly, quite ignorant and blatantly arrogant.
