I was lucky enough to pick up this Cab for nearly $15 off at the local Spec's. The Cab has a rich, violet color that is a bold as its taste. Full bodied with a big mouth feel. Notes of black berry, leather, smoke, and herb flavors with a background of well developed tannins. The finish is very pleasant and sticks with you for quite some time. If you can get a deal on this one I would pick some up. This wine will do well if aged.

Dark fruit flavors including black currant alongside aromas of leather, earth, wood, and chocolate. Great cabernet character in what I would consider an Old World style wine. Really nice balance. Medium body with firm tannins. I really liked this wine, highly recommended.

Winemaker's Notes:

Yet another classic from the Cape's king of Cabernet; Kevin Arnold hasn't put a<br/>foot wrong since it all began in 1998.The 2005's a quivering blend of Cabernet<br/>Sauvignon 89%, Cabernet Franc 5%, Malbec 3%, Petit Verdot 3%, aged for 22 mths<br/>in 40% new French barriques, giving bright graphite, blackberry and violet<br/>aromas, hints ints of shaved lead pencil and fennel seed. Broad rich palate<br/>with mouth-filling structure. Big, but finely judged tannins. Enjoy<br/>alongside a rare grilled fillet of Karan (!) beef and sauce<br/>béarnaise...bet you're thirsty now.
