Aromas of vanilla, cracked black pepper and dark damson fruit. On the palate this wine is round and fleshy, beautifully balanced and packed full with robust red fruit flavours and a lick of oak.
Great with a generous home made burger or a spicy sausage casserole.

The Story behind the Wine :
The Showdown range is inspired by the Poker nicknames of different cards, beginning with a Cabernet Sauvignon from California where “Cab is King”. Since then, the range has expanded to show both typical Californian varieties and the more unusual cultivars found in the region, all under contemporary, playing card inspired labels.
The grapes are selected from old vine Zinfandel vineyards in the Lodi region of central California. Vinified in stainless steel tanks and sees a little oak ageing.
