Complex and layered aromas of cassis, plums and sweet spice are further complimented by notes of tobacco, cedar wood and cigar box on the nose. The palate has a plush, juicy red and black fruit core with seamless, integrated tannins and a fine seam of acidity. Pin-point balance between the new oak and fruit results in a wine with grace and elegance. Beautiful savory notes on the finish. A great accompaniment to meat casseroles, steak, roasts and a selection of well-matured cheeses. Blend: 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Cabernet Franc, 13% Merlot

Winemaker: Abrie Beeslaar. Licorice, violet and rooibos tea spice rides atop the earthy cherry pit, black plum flesh and warm strawberry-rhubarb pie tones on the nose of this blend of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot and 13% Cabernet Franc. The palate is similarly spicy and well structured, with framing tannins and a velvety texture that envelop the ripe red-fruit flavors. There’s a nice juiciness on the palate, lending freshness through the finish. It’s bright and well balanced, and will mature well through 2030.
