Sample from #CapeClassics.
Medium ruby red with a dark core. Elegant nose with lots of perfumed notes like rose petals, and lavender. Over a half hour or so it started to open up with some savory herbs and soft red cherries. Low tannins (4/10) with balanced acidity. Very soft and elegant on the palate as well with more red cherries and slight tanginess before the finish. Day two the finish got a little metallic. Light body and dry medium finish. Very drinkable Syrah-based blend, not very complex but not flat either. Solid value for only $12.99. Drink till 2018.

Slightly acidic, easy-drinking red. Not very full-bodied so good in the moment but you won't remember it forever

Rather thin and diluted with little varietal character. A hint of volatile acidity takes it down a peg.

Couldn't decide whether or not I liked it. Dry & fruity, but not sweet. Will try again with a summer cookout.
