"In a world of cookie-cutter products, Protea is on a mission to make wines that dare to be exotic and beautiful, in every way imaginable. They've broken new ground by offering their uniquely delicious wines in designer-crafted bottles you won't forget, and won’t want to discard. Protea Red combines Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Shiraz and strives for complexity and intensity while never, ever succumbing to the pitfalls of the Big Indistict Red.
Color is Deep Ruby. Aromas of blackberry, espresso and spice. On the palate, this red blend strives for great fruit, balance and juiciness with a plush texture and subtle grippy tannins." -Importer
