Don Maximiano Founder's Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
“Don Maximiano 2015 is dense, muscular and refined. Dark and rich in color with aromas of licorice, fresh red berries like raspberries, cherries and strawberry, accompanied by soft tones of chocolate and nutmeg. While still distinctively focused, the wine is all about fruit intensity, with notes of cedar and dried cherry, currant and cardamom. With firm tannins in balance with black fruit flavors and bright acidity, the 2015 Don Maximiano is powerful, dense, yet beautifully balanced and precise.”
Don Maximiano Founder's Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2004
Our Don Maximiano 2004 has a deep ruby red colour and ripe, intense fruit on the nose, with notes of blackberry and cassis. The smooth, toasted character of cocoa beans and chocolate is given by the subtle use of French oak that accompanies this wines aroma while respecting the fruit and delivering complexity. The early palate is smooth but grows in volume and textural richness. This wine finishes with a wonderful balance of structure, freshness and elegance. The complementary caramel and coffee notes contributed by the wood add warmth and complexity. The Shiraz supplies juiciness and sweetness, the Petit Verdot acidity to boost freshness and the Cabernet Franc braces the Cabernet Sauvignon with its tannic structure. Decanting is suggested.
