Dark ruby in color with medium intensity and a reddish rim. Nice nose of blueberries, blackcurrants, sweet cherries, strawberry pie, coke, vanilla, vegetables, graphite, black pepper, spices, barnyard, wet leaves and tar. Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity and nice legs. Dry on the palate with plums, cherries, currants, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, herbs, spices, dark, coffee, vegetables, green herbs, tobacco leaf, cocoa and peppercorn. Medium plus in length on the finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries. This is a nice Cabernet Sauvignon from South Africa. Easy drinking with a nice mouthfeel. Nice and balanced with a tangy finish. Needs an hour to open up properly and show some tannins, but drinkable right out of the bottle too. I really liked the nose, it is fruity and refreshing with red fruits and earth notes. I paired it with a few different French Brie cheeses, nuts and crackers. 14% alcohol by volume. 87 Points. $10.

It's time for my #fridaycabernetfix . This week it's from South Africa. Dark ruby in color with a purplish rim. Fruity nose of blackberries, black currants, plums, cooked cherries, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, herbs, spices, dark chocolates, coffee, peppercorn and vegetables. Full bodied and bold with medium acidity and nice legs. Dry on the palate with black currants, cranberries, plums, sweet strawberries, herbs, spices, vegetables, oak, licorice, earth, peppercorn and red chilli. Medium plus on the finish with firm tannins and tangy raspberries. This South African Cabernet always delivers. Inexpensive, but drinks very nicely. Nice and balanced with nice complexity and a great mouthfeel. Has a nice tangy finish, which I liked. Needs 30 minutes to open up properly and show some tannins, but good right out of the bottle, and it has a screw top for the on the go wine drinker. 14% alcohol by volume. 88 points. $10.
