62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Malbec,
10% Petit Verdot, 10% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc.
This supple Bordeaux blend was created
by the legendary Mike Dobrovic as a
tribute to Boes ("Bushy" in Afrikaans),
the loyal dog who kept watch over
Mulderbosch farm for nearly three years
after his owner's death, waiting beneath
an oak tree for the return of his beloved
master. Enticing aromas of blackcurrant,
mulberry, coffee, and spice lead to intense
flavors of ripe plum, blackberry, and
licorice enhanced by signature Bordeaux
notes of tobacco, forest floor and graphite.

I first tried this blend while visiting my son and daughter-in-law in Pittsburgh. I was immediately smitten. This full bodied delight is great with anything (yes, even pizza) and has an excellent, flavorful finish... Well worth the price. I bought 6 to cellar but couldn't wait to sample it... so, I tore through one immediately and gave one as a gift to a special friend...
Was thinking of giving this 1 star due to the almost overwhelming green bell pepper taste (I don't exactly like my wine to taste of vegetables), but it did grow on me a little bit as it opened up while I had it with cheese and crackers. It's different, at least. edit--back to 1 star, dumped half the bottle on 2nd night (vacu vin'd from night 1) due to the 'green pepper explosion'. Yuck.
