This was a bottle of the Private Cellar Franschoek Cabernet Sauvignon. Bottle no. 2223 of 2700. This wine was immediately drinkable. Berry jam bouquet. Garnet red in color. Tanins were so very mellow. Mouth feel was a little lighter than expected but the luscious finish was long and memorable. — 22 days ago
A few fun bottles from last Friday.
This falls in to the “good” category for me. Doesn’t stand out in a good or bad way. Down the line and easy to enjoy. The profile here was definitely lighter than expected, which was semi refreshing. At its age and with its profile, it seemed like a bridge to Bordeaux...not jammy or hot, shower some herbs, currant, dusty cedar, dried black cherries and only a kiss of oak. — 20 days ago
