Intensely dark fruit and peppery taste. Quite nice.

You wouldn't guess this was a new world wine - clay, soil, cinnamon and black pepper shows up first on the nose. Even the palette is very reserved in the fruit - old red and black berries, and sour to boot - with dusty earth and a bit of green vegetation.

Better than I expected for a South African cab. Heavy on the oak, very peppery, and hints of dark fruits. A little acidic with the after taste.

A lot of alcohol. Heavy. Even with aeration just not easy to enjoy.

Very deep in color. Taste is light not much of an after taste.
