Excelsior Cabernet Sauvignon South Africa 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

100% Cabernet Sauvignon. Blackish plum in color. Aromas of ripe blackcurrants and plum. Soft ripe tannins balance toasty oak aromas and sweet fruit flavors. Good structure with a soft, clean finish. Not yet reviewed; 2009 vintage rated 89 points and 'Best Buy' by Wine Enthusiast: ...well worth the money. Black currant leaf, dark plum flesh and baked fruitcake fill out the nose and mouth, while a touch of milk chocolate enriches the finish. Balanced and drinkable now with medium weight and approachable tannins.
