Glenelly Lady May Cabernet Sauvignon Glenelly South Africa Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

91% Cabernet Sauvignon and 9% Petit Verdot that is raised for 24 months in new French oak. It has a very controlled, refined bouquet with intense blackberry, raspberry and cedar aromas with just a slight pepper/herbaceous edge. The palate is full-bodied with firm, grippy, austere tannins and superb balance that makes this so fresh and vibrant.

The nose was at once sweet and savory with black currant, cherry, charred meat, tobacco, underbrush and bell pepper. It entered the palate like velvet, then turned to intensity as red and black currant fruits, airy menthol and green pepper notes saturated the senses. It's compact structure flexed it's muscle on the long finish as tart berry fruit was turned even drier by fine grain tannin. I can only imagine that this wine will one day bloom into something extraordinary with it's posed structure and concentration of fruit. Wow.
