SOL NEGRU Cabernet Sauvignon

95 MDL

It is a full-bodied wine with predominant acidity and strong tannins, which are the main factors that make a wine age well. Being an oak-aged wine, the color is already ruby-red, intensive, and vibrant. The aromatic profile is very colorful with green pepper hints, along with cassis, tobacco, and dark fruits like cherries, and a bit of vanilla that comes from the oak. In the taste, the wine is robust, strong, and long-lasting on the palette.
