Winemaker's Notes:

"Deep ruby-red. Classic cabernet aromas of blackcurrant, black olive, graphite and flowers. Lush, dense and concentrated, with suave, complex, intense flavors of red berries, herbs, flowers and menthol. A fruit bomb though with a rather restrained sweetness. Finishes long, floral and ripe, and a bit youthfully tight."
-90+ International Wine Cellar

Intense, balanced, rich mouth-feel with soft tannins. Tobacco leaf and mint on the nose. Well integrated attractive vanilla nuances giving way to dusty currant, plum and licorice flavors. Elegantly dry with a long persistent finish.

About Waterford:

Located in the Helderberg mountain range in the well-known Stellenbosch area, Waterford Winery is owned by the Ord and Arnold families. The Waterford Way is a philosophy that honors prosperity, celebrates life, food and wine, and loves family and friends with passion. Each vintage pays tribute to the families who make these wines, by bearing the name of a family member on the Kevin Arnold Shiraz.
