Western Cape Cabernet Sauvignon

De Toren

Fusion V Stellenbosch Red Blend 2011

Lush, fruit forward. Candied dates, prunes, clove, roasted character on the front. Gives way to a darker smoked meat character. Was the best with the homemade salad dressing consisting of avocado, fresh basil, Greek yogurt, green onion, garlic and parsley. In a way I could see all of these characteristics in this wine. In the past these have seemed a little tight and a bit closed off on the finish, but this wine was ready for the show. I think this producer is really quite underrated when it comes to the time it takes for these to really start expressing and I would put these up against any of the South African 'first growth' wineries. — 12 days ago

Surprisingly balanced and lively Merlot Cab from South Africa considering the age. Could have sworn it's a good Bordeaux. — a day ago

Moss Wood

Moss Wood Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 1996

The epitome of Moss Wood. Cassis, Herbs, Brambles, and Tomato bush aromas. A beautiful aged Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon flying high at 23 years of age - at it’s peak. Seamless on the palate still with great intensity and balance - resolved Tannins. Would hold its own with top shelf Left Bank Bordeaux IMO. The winery says 1996 was a 10/10 vintage. My last bottle of 750 ml but the good news is I have a Magnum which I will leave for a few more years and probably consume on my 70th!!! — 14 days ago

Rust en Vrede

Estate Stellenbosch Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2008

65% Cab Sauv, 27% Shiraz, 8% Merlot Blend. Delicious blend of ripe blackberries, black currants and blueberries. This medley is followed by spices, soft anise, and white pepper. For a final finish, lush velvety tannins that linger well. — 12 days ago

Chamonix Winery

Reserve Troika Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2009

Truly a brilliant wine. So youthful for its age (sure, only ten years, but this isn’t the Médoc), but everything poised in perfect harmony. The first sip raised my eyebrows for its immediate explosion of fruit; then came the lavender & violet on the mid-palate, followed by a long, savoury finish. Memorable and, at £16, an absolute no-brainer. — 5 days ago
