Noble Hill

Paarl Cabernet Sauvignon

One blue margarita and truly couldn’t be happier to say goodnight and go home to my next review haha. What do you know the granaritic soils of Paarl do well by a fruit forward Cab. Rich blue and black berries but a grand rip of acid. Wholeheartedly a new world baby, as the earth was minimal, but a simpler offering sometimes is just what you desire. The structure limber and balanced on the light side. It does not demand a steak but it’s surely not bubble gum.It’s a dance partner who has no flair but knows the choreography and rhythm cold. — 9 days ago

Reserve Durbanville Pinotage 2017

17.5/20 (93/100) Сложный, насыщенный аромат с тонами шоколада, кедра, ванили, вяленой сливы, изюма, чёрного чая и тимьяна. Тельное с высокой кислотностью и интенсивными, обволакивающими танинами. Яркое во вкусе. Великолепно, несмотря на то, что тона дуба доминируют. #capewine2018 — 7 days ago

Grand Brut Champagne Blend 2016

17/20 (92/100) Богатый аромат моченых яблок, айвы, лимонного сока и мощными тонами хлебного мякиша и сдобного теста. Довольно тельное с высокой кислотностью, насыщенное во вкусе. Отлично! #capewine2018 — 10 days ago

Grand Constance Muscat 2015

9.1

Perfect way to start off our trip to SA. Medium auburn yellow in appearance. Fragrant nose with white flowers, honeysuckle, sweet berries and a light touch of cedar. Medium bodied with well balanced acidity. Not as thick as the Vin de Constance and the alcohol is blended in well. Lovely palate with elements of toffee, honeysuckle, a bit of berries and a little nutty. Long finish. Drink till 2029. — 2 days ago

Glenelly Estate

Lady May Cabernet Sauvignon Petit Verdot 2011

Velvet as can be I picture wrapping up in a purple velvet cloak (okay confession sorta-former goth I could do that right now), hiding in a cedar closet with a glass of creme de cassis, bouquet of lavender and dark music but not to dark. The more air it gets the more interesting things come out. This is the Joy Division of Stellanbosch cabs? Dark and deep yet consumer friendly. Not pop but not quite goth. — 11 days ago

Hmmmm unless in my hometown of Stl visiting Vintage Vinyl I cannot buy music in person for fear of judgment

Blacksmith Wines

The Blacksmith Barebones Paarl Cinsault

Fun-ass juice up in here. Bright, crunchy red fruits, a little earth, and some dried herbs whispering gently on the palate. Cinsault may not be the most complex of grapes, but I’ll be damned if it isn’t among the most satisfying. — 8 days ago

Mullineux Family Wines

Schist Swartland Syrah 2013

An unmistakable animale on the nose and on the palate, ringing out a distinctive Southern Hemisphere terroir. Undergrowth, black currant and nutty spice. A broad beam of tannins frame a medium-bodied gem that’s built to last. Superb. — 4 days ago

Private Collection Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2016

16/20 (89/100) Вино с ароматами чёрной смородины, шоколада и ванили и заметной травянистой нотой. Умеренная кислотность, по сравнению с 2017 годом танины стали мягче, приятнее. Ягодное во вкусе. #capewine2015 — 8 days ago
