Add to Cart:

Beautiful elegant bottle in the shape of an ancient amphora. This is a world class Cabernet made by a Decanter Award Winning Winemaker. Makes a beautiful gift.

Wine: Cabernet Sauvignon 2009 – 100% Cabernet Sauvignon

Style: Dry red wine

Winery: Erzetič

Country: Slovenia, Goriska brda region on the northern Italian border.

Notes: A uniquely crafted Cabernet; after 3 weeks of maceration it ages for 18 months in mixed French, American and Slavonian oak; next matured 1 year in an immense 7’ clay amphora with the body of the amphora receded into the cellar floor; allowing for aging without oak influence. It is presented in an elegant amphora shaped bottle. A beautiful deep red wine that leaves garnet tears on the glass. A subtle nose of ripe red fruits, dark red fruits, chocolate and oak. On the palate, red fruits followed by leather, chocolate, earthiness and gentle tannins. Wonderful with red meats and game dishes.
