Food Pairings for Mulderbosch Faithful Hound
Yet another really good south african wine! This one is tasty and really interesting. It's rich and has a good mouthfeel. I like this one all by it's self. It's 50% bordeaux but the blend in it mellows it out just enough for me.
Absolutely an outstanding wine. The price is great, but the taste is better. Potent and passionate, this South African beauty will rival many more expensive Bordeaux's. It comes to Canada infrequently, and I always eagerly await its arrival. On top of the other flavours submitted, I'd like to add "smoky". An unusual flavour for most wines, but it can be found in Faithful Hound, and is extremely interesting.

A Proprietary Blend wine from Stellenbosch in South Africa. 2008 Mulderbosch Faithful Hound 750ml
Enticing aromas of blackcurrant, mulberry, coffee, and spice lead to intense flavors of ripe plum, blackberry, and licorice enhanced by signature Bordeaux notes of tobacco, forest floor and graphite.
This wine displays a deep ruby colour. Blackcurrant, coffee, nutmeg, all spice, forest floor and mulberry aromas entice the nose. This follows through on the palate together with ripe plum, intense blackberry and voluptuous vanillins giving the wine great structure and complexity.
Glossy ruby color with a cerise rim. A mixed bag of concentrated blackcurrant, coffee, forest-floor fruit and nutmeg aromas. Voluptuous flavors of ripe plum and intense blackberry combine with subtle wood vanillins to give the wine its lovely complexity.
The plum and peppery spice nose of this Bordeaux-style red blend leads into approachable flavors of plum, vanilla oak and currants. The wine offers elegant tannins and a smooth finish.
The ruby-colored 1996 Faithful Hound reveals a spicy, roasted bell pepper and blackberry-scented nose. It is foursquare, somewhat warm, packed with dark berry fruit (including cassis and plum), and has an appealingly long finish. It should be at its best between 2001 and 2004.
With its deep, dark colour and seductive, spicy aromas, the 2009 FH is a fine example of the blended claret style of wine. Aromas of bold ripe blackberries, cinnamon spice and light touches of peppermint characterize the nose. The entry is full and round, building to a bold core which tapers off to a subtle, lengthy finish. Savoury flavours of graphite, forest floor and cured ham are well balanced by a lively red berry freshness.
