Alc: 14.3% | Type/Varietal: Zinfandel - Red

Appellation: | Region:

notes: , , , , , , , ,

This is a young, assertive Zinfandel. The color is dark garnet or pigeon ruby red with great clarity and medium body which will develop over the next two or three years. The wine displays bright tannins in the front of the palate, softening to cherries with a hint of smoke, wood and tobacco. On the finish you will notice a dark, rich plum characteristic. Good now but outstanding in 2 to 3 years.

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
