This a a classic bordeaux blend from a well-known South African Winery. Big tannins with flavors of tobacco, mineral, berry, and licorice. Wonderful!
oaky, smokey, tobacco nose. very strong start. black fruits soon follows at first slip. very strong acid. has a spicy taste to it, too. i actually thought that the tannin was rather smooth and went by unnoticed for a wine with such character and structure. there is a hint of of chocolate sweetness at the finish.
