Mellasat M 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon
Cassis and dark fruits on the nose that follow to the palate. This wine reflects the aged mobility of Cabernet Sauvignon. Matured in French oak barriques and in bottle for up to five years before release, culminating in a wine that is structured, well balanced and time honoured. Your enjoyment of it is our pleasure.
