Painted Wolf The Den Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
This wine was made from ripe grapes picked to deliver a rich flavor. Cabernet fermented in the tank on a blend of French oak staves and then completed malolactic and maturation on staves in a mixture of new and older oak barrels. This wine is good now but will continue to improve over the next 3-4 years.
The Painted Wolf, is also known as the African Wild Dog – a highly social animal, each with its own ornate markings. The Den is at the heart of the pack, a place where Painted wolves relax and bond. The Den Cabernet Sauvignon is a classy, full-bodied and balanced – a social wine to enjoy with family, friends and good food. A medium to full bodied wine with typical Cab flavors of black currant, brambly fruit, cigar box augmented by toasty oak. The wine has a lovely rich texture, soft ripe tannins with a long fruit driven finish.
