Western Cape Cabernet Sauvignon


Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Opaque, dark red-purple in appearance. Aromas of vegetables, meat, black fruits. Medium plus bodied, dry, 15.0 ABV. A nice departure from California as the fruit is on the back, so less jammy. Soft tannins and a long finish. Excellent value from Stellenbosch!

Cabernet Franc Big Flower 2019

Another solid vintage of this South African Cabernet Franc. Dark ruby color. Aromas and flavors of black cherry, blackberry and black currant. Hints of black licorice and earth. Quite ripe but with excellent balance. Dark and brooding. — 18 days ago

Cape Mentelle

Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

The first of 4 bottles from my cellar. The nose has blackberry, violets and dried herbs. The palate has that trademark Margaret River herbaceousness but in this warmer vintage more cassis, fine persistent tannins which go on forever - almost silky. Just a beautiful rendition of Margaret River Cabernet with a very long life in front of it - say 20 years. Cape Mentelle one of the early vineyards and down in the south near the town. — 10 days ago

Sorry you missed this one, Neal.
South Africa. And overall I got in trouble three times for talking too much and not finishing my tasting in time.

Juicy. Light guava. Sharp but short acidity. A little flabby on the backend. — 15 days ago

Western Cape Red Blend 2003

Don t know how this tasted in the suggested window. But I’m guessing that window wasn’t 20 years. Now is has a massive blackberry, plum, cherry, tabaco. Still mild tanine, no aging toned. Light bayleaf bitters. Very enjoyable (or as Peter would say: quafable 🤪) — 5 hours ago

Leeuwin Estate

Art Series Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

A cooler expression of cabernet is the usual Margaret River way and this shows all of the minty capsicum it can in balance with currants and red cherry fruit. Barely a trace of oak. Med+ tannin, med/med+ acids add a nice juicy mouthwatering med+ finish. — 6 days ago
