This wine, the St. Augustine, is one of South Africa’s most popular and storied red wine blends – first produced in the 1940s. It is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Shiraz. It is named for the first Saint of Africa, St. Augustine, and when poured produces a deep garnet color. On the nose, you will detect plum jam notes along with some leather and spice. On the mouth, expect more black cherry, plums, and spice. It is a hearty wine perfect for heavy meals, like pasta or anything braised and served with potatoes. Score: 4 (out of 5).
