Velvety tannins provide a luxurious frame for the intense fruit flavours, enveloping the palate in a seamless embrace. Ripe black fruits dominate, with nuances of black pepper and dark chocolate adding depth and complexity. A subtle earthiness lends a sense of terroir, grounding the wine and enhancing its sense of place.

Finish: The journey culminates in a long and lingering finish that leaves a lasting impression. Silky smooth and satisfyingly rich, Saboteur Red leaves the palate awash with the lingering echoes of dark fruit and spice, inviting another sip and beckoning to be savoured anew.
