Fable Lion S Whisker Red South Africa 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

"This has a plummy, blackberry-filled core, with lots of roasted mesquite and cedar notes inlaid nicely throughout. Tangy savory herb and bay leaf flavors flitter through the finish. Tasty." WS 10/12 "The bouquet is refined with a fresh balanced, floral character. The palate shows a soft richness of berries and spice with a lingering savoury finish. The wine is enjoyable now, but will also benefit from cellaring for up to 5 years." Winemaker's notes

On the nose, a bit of a musty smell with slightest hint of cinnamon. On the palate, good fruit flavors - plum peel and black currant - but by no means jammy. Lots of spicey/greenish notes. More of an old World style - very enjoyable. Good acidity, dusty tannins, medium bodied, moderate aromatic finish.
