Winemaker's Notes

Hailed by Wine Spectator as "one of the Cape's most consistently outstanding wines," Thelema's Cab regularly earns 90+ raves. Complex and stylish, this sleek benchmark bottling abounds with alluring flavors of blackberry and blackcurrant intertwined with notes of coffee, cedar, tobacco, and eucalyptus.

Critical Acclaim

"Ripe and focused, with alluring mint and cocoa notes up front, followed by velvety tannins that carry dark currant, warm fig sauce and coffee notes through the long finish. There's impressive latent grip as well. Drink now through 2012."
92 Points

"This classic Cabernet offers alluring aromas of green pepper, mocha, mint and smoke. Flavors of tobacco, smoke and ripe plum are savory and rich, with a lovely fine tannic structure and complex spice character. Lingering spice is another plus. Imported by Cape Classics."

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes.
