Tasting Notes:

A saturated purple hue hints at the exuberant aromas of ripe, brambly fruit that leap from the glass of our 2010 Caravan Cabernet Sauvignon. The high proportion of hillside fruit comes through in this vintage with juicy fresh-picked blueberry and dark cherry notes joined by brushy sage, mocha, cedar and vanilla. A stylish wine, with a firm, structured palate and polished tannins that give length and breadth to the warm and spicy finish.
