Wine Review: This midnight purple colored red blend from South Africa opens with a musty oak and leather bouquet with hints of black cherry and vanilla. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced, smooth and juicy. The flavor profile is a cedar infused strawberry and plum with notes of nicely integrated black tea throughout. The finish is dry and its flinty and dusty tannins linger and last for quite a while. The Panel suggested this wine with a ribeye steak. Enjoy – KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: Deep, dark intense ruby colour. Blackcurrant and black cherry fruit with hints of violets, cedar and cinnamon. Rich and complex with mineral, black berry fruit and dark chocolate on the finish. Harmoniously composed of sufficient of each of the five Bordeaux varieties to ensure none dominates. This wine shows a consistent, linear flavour profile with a polished finish.
