Natalie's Score: 90/100
An attractive rich deep red hue in the glass. Aromas of dark spice and blackberry from start to finish. The former name of this wine was The Gamekeeper’s Reserve, but the wine remains as great as ever. Long finish infused with cedar smoke. Lovely cedar-rich, mint, blackberry aromas on the nose of this robust, deep red wine. Full-bodied and smooth with a kick that keeps you coming back to the glass. Pair with reading the book Out of Africa.
Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: roast leg of lamb and root vegetables, barbecued pork spareribs, sizzling New York strip steaks, veal chops, strong cheeses.

Cedar, black currant, dark cherry, earth and herbs on the nose. Rich and refreshing, this value priced Cabenert Sauvignon shows great depth and balance making it a winner with flavourful cheese, gourmet burgers, or grilled steak. Tasted January 2016. 89 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
|Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
This full-bodied South African Cabernet is a decadent deep ruby colour with good aromas and flavours of fleshy black cherry, cassis, black raspberry, cigar box and herbal notes. The wine is dry with some grippy tannins so suggest decanting. Good balanced acidity and a decent finish. Good price/quality performer at $19. Pair with roasted or grilled red meats, BBQ rack of ribs with sauce, hamburgers.
Tasted: January 2016
|Debbie Ingram - CSW, WSET Level 1 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Another great value wine from South Africa! This is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and has lots of black fruits, tobacco and cocoa on the nose. The wine is well balanced with good acidity firm tannins with a lingering finish. This would be a great accompaniment to grilled meat dishes.
|The profits for this full-bodied South African Cabernet support Graham Beck's fund a wildlife conservancy to protect several endangered species on the winery's estate. One of the most elusive and shy of South Africa's Big Five animals is the leopard, an apex predator. This big cat is critical to the sustainability of other species. The leopard is one of the animals on the winery's wildlife game reserve on the Robertson estate. - Community Wine Reviews|
