For PengWine this is a big step up in class. Royal is an ultrapremium blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cab Franc, aged in new oak and showing all the signs of an elevated red wine. It's ripe and sweet, with caramel, carob and espresso sitting alongside roasted berry flavors. Balanced, generous and ready to go. Drink now through 2010. Imported by PengWine.
