Grapes: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
Tasting Notes: 2017 was a dry vintage in Stellenbosch with concentrated flavors. This is a lovely, elegant red with ripe, red fruits and an easy-going texture. It's not a light wine although all too easy to drink. Best with good food but fine for a party. The wine comes from old vineyards, mostly fermented with its natural (not commercial) yeast and aged in French oak. It is medium to full bodied, easy, fruity and supple enough to drink quite young but will improve with age.
