Puffin Cabernet Sauvignon


Tasting Notes

The best Puffin Cab Sauv yet!

Puffin Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 delivers enticing aromas of dark fruit and herbs.

On the palate, this Cabernet is layered with fruit flavors of black cherry and blackberry, combined with flavors of mint, sage and cedar.

A beautiful, deep garnet color, Puffin Cab Sauv has firm tannins, hints of toasted spice, and a strong acid structure that indicates this wine is going to age nicely during the next 10 years as the acid, tannins and fruit integrate.

Food Pairing
