Cabernet Sauvignon South Australia
Angus the Bull was a simple idea that just wouldn't go away, it soon became an obsession. When it finally reached the point where it occupied all his waking moments, Hamish MacGowan finally decided to turn his vision into a reality. The philosophy behind Angus The Bull is to deliver the ultimate beef eater's experience in good red wine, the ideal accompaniment to charred steak and prime roast beef. Cabernet Sauvignon is the fruit of choice, the aim being to construct an immensely satisfying wine of perennial dependability and consistency.
Intense colour with bright purple hues. Ripe black fruits with rich dark chocolate and vanillin smoky oak aromas. Medium to full bodied palate weight, characterised by dark bramble berry flavours, blue cassis characters and black olive notes, over a length of firm ripe tannins, before a bold, savoury masculine finish.

Hi Ive heard that this is a wine for steak, there's nothing in your notes to explain what makes it more suitable than any other red
