Johan Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

My dearest son, Johan

The Cabernet Sauvignon is a perfect match for both your physique & your personality. Strong & robust, yet it gently rewards the palate with an explosion of wild berries & plum. A serious, giving wine that brings a twinkle to the eye.

Destined for greatness, this wine’s true character will only improve with age.

Made with love
