Wine Review: This dark red colored Cabernet Sauvignon based blend from South Africa opens with a cranberry, cedar and cinnamon bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and has a slightly round mouthfeel. The flavor profile is a cedar and cinnamon candy influence with notes of red plum and a hint of red raspberry. The finish is dry and its mild tannins stick around nicely. This wine would pair well with barbecue beef brisket. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: De Toren Fusion V 2016 reveals a truly pure and complex flavor, with aromas of black cherry, cedar and dark berries.
