Black Label Cabernet Shiraz Malbec
In its 44th vintage, Wolf Blass Black Label Cabernet Shiraz Malbec has been artfully blended to create a sophisticated, multi-layered red wine with a complex composition of intense fruit and magnificent structure.
GRAPE VARIETY 65% Cabernet Sauvignon | 33% Shiraz | 2% Malbec
COLOUR Concentrated deep purple.
NOSE A lifted, fragrant nose, with blackberry, cassis and dark plum fruits reinforced with roast coffee, chocolate, fennel seed, and toasted nut complexity derived from barrel fermentation and maturation. Hints tobacco leaf add attractive highlights.
PALATE Generous and complex, with dark plum and blackcurrant fruit layered with savoury secondary flavours of coffee and cedary oak. Typical of the characteristic Black Label style that overrides regional and varietal influences, with a full, rich, palate reflecting the vintage. Showing definitive power and elegance through seamless texture, beautifully balanced, lingering fruit and smooth, long, chocolatey tannins.
