About The Wine




Vangone Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

  • "This relatively new label gets nearly three years in barrel, so this 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is the current release. It is made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and was aged in 100% new French oak barrels for 30 months. Deep garnet-purple in color, the nose gives up bombastic scents of crème de cassis, blueberry preserves and blackberry pie with touches of menthol, truffles, crushed rocks and iron ore plus a waft of mossy tree bark. Full-bodied, rich, concentrated and packed with savory-laced black fruit layers, it is framed by grainy tannins and seamless freshness, finishing long."
