Vintages Wine Panel: St. Augustine is a proprietary red that is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Shiraz. According to the John Platter South African Wines 2008, it lays claim to the title of most popular South African red since the 1940s. Named for the first Saint of Africa, this full-bodied wine is ripe and round and packed with plum, black cherry and notes of leather and spice. My note: A rustic, robust, straight-forward red with satisfying flavors of dark berries, cassis and smoke. Full-bodied.
