The 2008 AA Badenhorst is the 3rd vintage is a very satisfying
release of a wine of this quality following the complex 2007 that has received such critical acclaim. The wine has the potential to age very gracefully for the next decade or so. The aromas are brooding with
complex notes of pepper, licorice, perfume and black cherries. The palate entry is quite dense with lavender and dark berry fruit. The finish is dry with well spread tannins ending with savory and
currant flavours. The aromas are slightly more forward than the 2007 which will result in immediate gratification for some, as if this is necessary!
