Mulderbosch Faithful Hound 2008
Deep, black cherry colour penetrating from hue to rim. A surfeit of blackcurrant/cassis, blueberry jam and plum fruit alongside souboise, graphite, vanilla pod, tobacco and cedar wood typical of a classical styled Cabernet-based blend. Full body showing a grainy texture with mid palate richness, fresh fruits as nose amalgamated with boysenberry, damson, fruitcake, coffee bean and dried herbs (clove, anise) that finish with a powdery tannin that will need a few more years to resolve and long length making one esurient for another glass.

Solidly ripe, but stylish, with a whiff of mint running through the red currant, blackberry and tobacco notes. A sanguine edge checks in on the finish.

A Proprietary Blend wine from Stellenbosch in South Africa. 2008 Mulderbosch Faithful Hound 750ml
