Stella Bella - Suckfizzle Cabernet Sauvignon 2010Finely Balanced
Appearance: Dark red.
Aroma: The nose is strikingly perfumed with ripe mulberries, dark chocolate and freshly picked mint lifted by hints of both tobacco and cherry. The background expression of mocha and vanillin from selected Tronçais French oak barrels inte grates well with the rich fruit flavours.
Palate: Medium to full bodied in the mouth, with a persistence of flavour. The powdery, brick dust tannins provide a silky, linear transition from the front to the back of the palate, with a salivating finish. The balance of savoury and sweetness of fruit and the suppleness of the tannins is integrated with redcurrant, sour cherry, anise, tar and subtle liquorice. Finely balanced and elegant with a beautiful easy weight.
Food ideas: Warm salad of wood pigeon with pommes Anna, cabernet sauvignon, walnut oil and friseé.
