Deep red, purple in color, the wine has high - toned blackcurrent, violet and cedar aromas with touches of mint, so typical of a Jonkershoek wine.
"Bright ruby-red. Sappy aromas of currant, minerals and licorice. Densely packed, vibrant and fine-grained but quite youthfully backward. Brisk acidity gives this pure, classic cabernet a penetrating character. Finishes with broad, fine tannins and a distinct spice character. Wonderfully balanced, structured cabernet, but give this plenty of air if you plan to open it anytime soon. Ten percent of shiraz from the 2005 vintage was blended in after the wine had spent 18 months in oak."
