Rich and full-bodied, this stunning Cabernet flaunts intense flavors of dark berry, black cherry, mocha and spice accented by smoky, gamy notes. South Africa's equivalent of a "First Growth," this cellar-worthy gem was one of a handful of wines to receive the coveted 5 Star rating in the 2008 edition of Platter's South African Wine Guide.
"Ripe and juicy, but nicely focused, with alluring fig paste,
black tea, incense and hoisin sauce notes carried by supple
tannins. The long finish lets all the flavors play out, with nice
buried acidity. The best Cabernet in a while from this Pinotage
specialist. Drink now through 2011."
