Western Cape Cabernet Sauvignon

Ernie Els

Stellenbosch Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

With a nose of dried black currants,
this SA Cab has layers of pomegranate, fig, black olive, tobacco, cacao. The heavy body of this wine is awakened and lifter by the orange zest acidity.
The lingering tannins structure is firm and gripping. Ripe and ready to drink.

Penny Black Red Blend 2015

Vintage 2015 | Multi blend from Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Chenin Blanc. Lovely effort! I gave the wine 4 hours in decanter and afterwards it had a velvety taste. Good concentration, berries in smell. Paired with Côte de Boeuf from the grill, morels and sweet potato. The only point that I don’t like is high alcohol. With the food the wine gets a nice impression of chocolate and cacao. — 14 days ago

You really like these multi-blends, @Peter van den Besselaar I’ve yet to find one that resonates with me.

Stellenbosch Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Pure dark fruit in the nose, classic Cabernet blend nose while there is also a little amount of Malbec and Petit Verdot. Souplesse ontheven mouth, easy drinking because it’s already so approachable. Clean and elegant Cabernet. 88% CS, 10% PV, 4% CF, 2% Malbec — 20 days ago

Vilafonté

Seriously Old Dirt Merlot Blend 2017

Seriously delicious Bordeaux blend from Paarl District, within the Western Cape and Coastal Region, of South Africa 🇿🇦 , produced by Vilafonté @vilafonte

This wine represents a blend of Malbec (37%), Merlot (36%), Cabernet Sauvignon (26%), and Cabernet Franc (1%).

👁 It is deep ruby with garnet rim variation. 👃 👄 It's fresh, plush, and ripe in its fruit expression which includes notes of blackberry, plum, dried cherries, and fig. It offers some vegetal and herbal influences such as bell pepper, freshly cut grass, wet earth; also secondary notes of vanilla, caramel, molasses, oak, sweet baking spices, and some tertiary notes of tobacco. It is dry, with medium acidity, medium(+) body, medium alcohol (13.5%), and high tannins. It has a medium(+) finish.

I'm excited about this wine and eager to further explore this producer and region of South Africa.

Cheers to wine travel!

Ekliptika Stellenbosch Cabernet Franc Blend 2016

I enjoyed drinking this unusual, “curveball” wine! It’s a bordeaux blend from South Africa — 50% cab franc, 30% merlot, and 20% cabernet sauvignon. The alcohol seemed high to me so I was thinking more of a GSM from Paso Robles, almost in the SQN style. I struggled to pick up any bell pepper/jalapeño that I usually get from cab franc. — 11 days ago
