V. & S. Perraud - Cab à l'Ouest 2018 (rött/red) : So intense!
This is the second vintage of this wine made of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc that we bring to Sweden. Compared to the 2016 vintage, the 2018 one comes with a much higher aromatic intensity (red and black fruits) while keeping the purity and genuineness of its predecessor. A great wine to drink now, and one showing great ageing potential as well. Once again the Perraud brothers offer us a hard to beat price for value deal.
A perfect wine to surprise family and friends around a meal of roasted beef with garlic or of 7-hour lamb. Enjoy !
