Bottle size: 750 ml
Natalie's Score: 87/100
Lots of spice from oak aging on the nose of this rustic red wine from the Western Cape region. Very tannic and full-bodied South African red wine: needs cellar time then decant 2 hours. Charred black fruit and toasty oak. Needs roasted meats or a meaty casserole.
Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot food pairings: gourmet hamburgers, rare rib steak, rouladen.

Tasted blind Nov 15th, 2017 at wine club. Colour bright ruby red, legs thick suggests high alcohol. Aromas and flavours of dried black cherry, raspberry, smoke, and a hint of green/red pepper blend. Taste, dry minus, fruity minus, medium mouthfeel, tannic. Finished hot and tea bag tannic. The group ranked this wine 5th of our 5 wines. It is a Left Bank Bordeaux blend, but was a little off on balance in my opinion. May need time in the bottle. Good value given the price. Sugessted food pairings are on the bottle. I like that. I would say worth the try at that price point. Make sure to let this one open for awhile before drinking.
