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. — 10 days ago

Haskell II

16.5/20 (90/100) Аромат чёрной смородины и черники с легким травянистым тоном. Тельное с высокой кислотностью и достаточно интенсивными, шероховатыми танинами. Шоколад проявляется во вкуса. Молодо, нужно подождать ещё пару лет. — 9 hours ago

Anvil Chardonnay 2017

16.5/20 (89/100) Вино с ароматами желтых яблок, груш, бананов и сливочного масла. Довольно тельное умеренной кислотностью и тёплым алкогольным финишем. Яблоки и табак во вкусе. Элегантное, не передубленное шардоне. — 8 hours ago

John X Merriman Stellenbosch Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2013

Cab-quest goes on! And this is so good it made this goth heart grin. Although realized this is 52% Merlot whoops. And after that Cab S plus small shares of Malbec, Cab f and petit Verdot (which I personally wanna see more single varietal iterations of). All things aside DAMN it gets the super specific term “yummy”. Red and black cassis, bits of blackberry, allspice and licorice and chocolate goodness! Silky as sin—deceptively easy to drink quickly so beware/enjoy...I’m enjoying but then I’m home alone. Has a lovely refreshing earthy note that keeps on keeping on... — 15 days ago

Frans K Smit Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2013

17+/20 (92+/100) Тон макового кекса доминирует в аромате, сопровождаемый нотами спелых ягод ежевики, черешни, кедра, мокко и свежескошенной травы. Тельное с высокой кислотностью и интенсивными, но лишь слегка шероховатыми по текстуре танинами. Вероятно, лет через пять танины станут шелковистыми. Мощно и молодо. — 8 hours ago

Hades Syrah 2015

16.5/20 (91/100) Сладкий, слегка «конфетный» аромат с нотами вишни, малины, красной сливы, ванили и изюма. Тельное с высокой кислотностью и интенсивными, вяжущими танинами. Ягодно-шоколадное во вкусе. Очень молодо. — 9 hours ago

Rust en Vrede

Estate Red Wine 2014

A pretty color of dark ruby with a short reddish rim.

Earthy nose of blueberries, black currants, bell pepper, green vegetables, wet leaves, earth, wood, spices, peppercorn, chocolates, tobacco leaf, licorice, leather, graphite, dark coffee and herbs.

Full bodied with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with plums, black currants, blackberries, coffee, earth, vegetables, graphite, spices, bitter herbs, black tea, oak, licorice, light vanilla, cloves, tobacco, pencil lead and black pepper.

Medium on the finish with round tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a nice surprise. A great South African red blend. Still young, but already enjoyable even by itself. A good food wine too.

Showing lots of earthy notes and vegetables with black fruits, great complexity and a nice mouthfeel. Feels very much like an old world wine with a teeth staining color. I loved smelling on it for a long time.

Needs 3 years in the bottle to mature properly and remove the vegetable notes.

Needed a couple of hours to open up properly, and I used the Vspin for 20 minutes.

Thank you David for sharing this delicious wine with me.

A blend of 62% Cabernet Sauvignon, 31% Shiraz and 7% Merlot. Aged for 18 months in French oak barrels.

I paired it with cheeses and crackers.

14.5 % alcohol by volume.

91 points.

$50.

16.5/20 (90/100) Вино с ароматами брусничного и вишневого варенья, чёрного перца и шоколада, легкий тон сухого картона. Тельное с довольно высокой кислотностью и интенсивными танинами. Заметная горечь во вкусе. Непростое вино. — 7 hours ago

Vintage Selection 1692 Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Bought this to cook with but also wanted to drink it too. Very drinkable. Usually choose malborough region but tried South Africa because of price. Not able to identify any flavors or aromas. Tastes like a full bodied Sauvignon Blanc. — 10 days ago
