Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Cabernet Sauvignon from South Africa opens with a smoky oak and black currant bouquet with a hint of graphite. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with medium acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced and quite savory. The flavor profile is a smoky oak and black currant blend with notes of graphite and red licorice. I also detected hints of black plum. The finish is dry, and its flavors linger nicely. This good value Cab would pair well with barbecue ribs. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: Opulent aromas of blueberries, plums, and red currants. Underlying hints of dried herbs and subtle oak spice add further complexity. The tannins are finely textured and add a sturdy framework to support the plush fruit core. Concentrated flavors of blue- and blackberries, combined with delicate acidity, creates a classic Stellenbosch Cabernet with a lengthy, dry finish. Pair with gourmet burgers or grilled red meats.
