A tribute to South Africa's Cape red blends of yesteryear, this wine is a blend of 38% Cabernet Sauvignon, 37% Cabernet Franc and 25% Cinsault. Medium-intense notes of chocolate-covered cherry, red plum and mulberry are married to some earthy cedar, herbal root and tea notes atop, like earl grey. The medium-weight palate is firm and austere, with a pronounced tannic structure that remains quite gripping through the close. Tight flavors of plum skin, cassis and cherry pit are young and reserved. This wine is just waiting to shine and show its full potential.
