Zevenwacht Zevenrood 2003

 

In the cellar

The Cabernet portion lends structure and weight to the wine and aids in longevity. The Merlot contributes softness and a melange of ripe red fruits that add to the lusciousness of the wine. The Syrah adds a touch of spiciness and complexity, especially in the elegant finish of this approachable wine. The wine spent almost 12 months ageing in 2nd fill French and American oak. These two components contribute spicy vanilla notes and wonderful cedar wood complexities on the nose and palate.
