Nice to try a library wine from their line up and this didn’t disappoint.

The nose shows; black currants, blackberries, black raspberries, dark plum, raspberries, strawberries, expresso roast, dark rich soils, crushed granitic soils, vanilla, clove, nutmeg, leather, a touch of smoke, sweet tarriness and bright red & dark florals.

The body is medium full. The tannins are cocoa, dry, tarry, meaty & sticky. The fruits brightly fresh juicy and bright. Black currants, blackberries, black raspberries, dark plum, raspberries, strawberries, expresso roast, dark rich soils, crushed granitic soils, vanilla, clove, nutmeg, leather, a touch of smoke, sweet tarriness and bright red & dark florals. The acidy is beautiful and the finish is delicious and well balanced. Nice Cabernet.

Photos of; Kanonkop tasting bar & room, bronze statue in their tasting room, old style canon that appears on their label and the mountain as viewed from their courtyard.
