Wine Review: This dark red colored blend from South Africa opens with a cedar, olive, strawberry and red raspberry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced and fruit forward. The flavor profile is a cedar plank influenced black cherry and black plum with notes of red licorice and some hints of nutmeg and black pepper. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins show very nice length. The Tasting Panel suggested pairing this wine with a slow cooked wild boar ragu served over pappardelle or a charcuterie platter. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: De Toren Fusion V 2015 reveals a truly pure and complex flavor, with aromas of black cherry, cedar and dark berries. This left-bank Bordeaux styled blend is supported by subtle hints of fennel, blueberries and dark, bitter chocolate. Soft as spun silk, with a lingering hint of sweet fruit on the back palate, this is a wine that will only improve with age. Hence, enjoyment of this vintage will be multiplied with a few years of aging in your cellar.
