Rustic, old-world, prehistoric almost. I've sat on this for 5 years in the hope that maturity would look with favor on this example. Alas, I may well be pushing up daisies before that comes around. My wife would throttle me if I opened this for her. A great SA producer has produced an impenetrable example. It begs for food, which as @TheSkip would say, "is not a good sign."

Bright cherry and Asian spices on the nose. Tannins are light and acidity is bright on this pretty wine. A perfect wine with fish.
