Blackcurrant and wild blackberry flavour richness on the nose and palate, with a gorgeously smooth texture and full-bodied weight. Nice cedar and underbrush notes on the finish. Perfect for hearty meat dishes. Nice price, too.

Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: grilled chicken, hearty meat dishes.

Reviews and Ratings

The crested porcupines are widely represented in South Africa. They are noisy animals that move with a ponderous gait accompanied by much snuffling and grunting, reminiscent of many wine tastings with the human species. They love pumpkins and root vegetables and are nocturnal (the porcupines, not the wine tasters). - Community Wine Reviews

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.
