Impressive, but seems young and a bit raggedy edged, everything not quite settled in. Perhaps, given a couple of years, this one will be great. Beautiful chocolate/plum/cherry/thyme nose and dark dark ruby/burgundy color.

Ernie has been one of South Africa's leading sportsmen for over a decade and has become an ambassador for our country. A scholar of life, he has taken to learning about wine like a fish to water.


Winemaker's Notes:

The 2011 is a brooding yet fine vintage. Pure-fruited cassis on the nose open to a fine balance of dark chocolate, wet earth, delicate spice and dried herbs. The palate has a dark inky intensity punched by a core of mineral finesse and all wrapped by a broad-shouldered finish. The tannins are burly and taught, but will easily integrate with time as this decadent Cabernet Sauvignon will age well for a decade. Serious yet sumptuous.
