SKU: CABCABMFRA18
This wine is a classic blend of varieties typically found on the left bank of the famed Bordeaux region. McLaren Vale has geographical similarities to the left bank with the ocean close by to the West. This maritime influence ensures the production of rich and complex Cabernet Blends. It brings together the classic structure and power of Cabernet Sauvignon, the plump fruitiness of Merlot, and the fragrant and textural Cabernet Franc.
