San Francisco De Mostazal Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 750ml:
Description: Known as "Cab in a Sack," the bottle is wrapped in burlap and then labelled. The story is that this is historically how they helped protect the bottle from breaking on its way to market. Deep violet red in color. The aromatic profile features fresh and dried cherry and dried plum, with a touch of mint and dark chocolate in the background. On the palate, the wine is rich, well balanced and approachable with a long finish. Food pairings are grilled or roasted meats, such as beef or pork, as well as full flavored dishes and pastas.

Bright fruit flavours linger during the long succulent finish.
