Some age to the Cab here; evident in a beautifully developed, complex aroma. A strong, muscular lad is this, a firm tannic structure only slightly mellowed by age, holding, like Atlas, a world of herb and liquorice edged black fruit compote, all encased in a dusty-brick whole. A tight, food-hungry, belt of acidity and a decently long length complete the statuesque whole. http://www.spittoon.biz/the_journeys_end_range_from_so.html

A delicacy here that is quite beguiling. Add a little whiff of squished up blueberries, a punnet of raspberries and a sprinkling of mixed spice to enliven the palate and it all melds together nicely. There's a firm, meaty finish that supplies a savoury complexity to the finish. http://www.spittoon.biz/the_journeys_end_range_from_so.html


Winemaker's Notes:

Located in Stellenbosch, with vineyards adjacent to Vergelegen and Morgenster, Journey's End is right at the heart of one of the cape's most exciting terroirs. bought and replanted by the Gabb family in 1996, the last ten years have seen the estate grow into one of the most talked about in the region. The wines have won accolades and medals at wine competitions around the world ever since the maiden vintages of the Cabernet and Chardonnay achieved 4 and 5 star ratings from the prestigious John Platter Guide in 2004. The philosophy in both the vineyards and cellar follows a minimum intervention approach to ensure the quality of the fruit shines through. This deep, intense purple-red rimmed Shiraz is not shy on the nose; it shows good wood integration with sweet berry fruits, spiciness and an earthy component. From the wood is a hint of cigar box, giving the wine a more diverse complexity. The palate shows mulberry spiced by black pepper; it is savoury and gamey with a rich, long aftertaste. The wine should age well in the bottle.
