Not a high producing varietal or one to be found on it's own, Graciano has a really interesting composition. With bold acidity and brooding flavours, its used primarily to boost other varietals in blends. In this instance, Cabernet Sauvignon. Bright and youthful, enjoy today at 18 C or hold for a few years to really let the flavours meld.
Dark figgy colour with a garnet core. Fades out to a bright ruby red rim with a nice medium opacity.
Greeted by a beautiful bouquet of juicy black cherries, raspberries and blackberries. Aromas of black currant, tart Saskatoon berries, and hints for steak spice and dried herbs. From time spend in barrels, notes of oak, vanilla and cedar are present.
Youthful and fresh, opening flavours of bright red cherry linger on the palate. Juicier black cherry, black currant, fig and baking spice are found a few sips in. Dried rosemary, oak and peppercorn spice hit the taste buds towards the finish. With a lighter mouthfeel, medium tannins and a medium acidity this red will leave you with a tingle of a cherry cough drop that's delicious till the last sip. Decant this wine to enhance the lush, bright flavours!
