Kaesler Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

Alc: 15% | Type/Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon - Red

Appellation: | Region:

notes: , , , , ,

Strong primary core with garnet rim. On the nose, it’s a very earthy Cabernet with olive leaf, cedar spice and layered with red stone fruit, Satsuma plums and blueberry. Soft elegant palate, very drinkable even in its youth, partly due to good balance of flavours between the fruit characters and savoury notes from the oak. This wine is a good medium term cellaring wine, 8-10 years

Dark purple-red, with a garnet edge. Fresh and fruit driven with blackberries, raspberries and blueberries. Some cherry notes on the nose. A combination of forest fruits with blackberries and mulberries. Savory aromatic spices of anise and nutmeg with some coffee and chocolate notes. Silky, delicate tannins; good acidity and well balanced. Ages beautifully with the berry notes becoming more prominent over time. It has decades to give, cellar up to 20+ years.

Alc: 14.5% | Type/Varietal: - Red Blend

Appellation: | Region:

notes: , , ,

Garnet colored. Bright, focused and appealing with blackcurrant, blackberries and fresh violets. Really elegant – savoury notes, fine white pepper, fresh rhubarb and white nectarine characters with fine tannin and tangy acidity. A lovely length on the palate. A wine to enjoy in its youth, however, it will happily live for another 10 years.
