V. & S. Perraud - Cab à l'Ouest 2019 (rött/red) : Best of the Cabs!
This is the third vintage of this wine made of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc grapes that we bring to Sweden.
Compared to the 2018 vintage, the 2019 tones down just a little bit the power of its predecessor, but keeps the purity and intensity that make all the charm of this cuvée and a great illustration of how both Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon can and should taste like. 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 !
