Always trying to spread the love and give a little bit of knowledge about South African wines. We decided to bring a solid Bordeaux Blend to share with some new friends at Hatchet Hall in LA.

Thank you @richardmiyake for bringing this incredible wine. The first young Turnbull for us and what a treat.
Deep purplish red. Tons of blackberries on the nose once it started to open up, followed by notes of anise and solid minerality. Heavy tannins (8/10) and full bodied. Rich yet tight on the palate with some blackberries, dark gravel, cinnamon and a little floral. Long and lingering finish. Drink till 2035. Needed an hour or so in the decanter to open up. — 3 days ago

Thank you @lawatchguy for bringing this incredible wine. Haven’t had this since visiting the K Laz Wine Collection two years ago and this has improved tremendously since then.
