Waterford Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Stellenbosch 2009

Member Review by Mary John Baumann, DWS:

Winemaker Francois Haasbroek has crafted the masterpiece of his tenure at Waterford Estate in Stellenbosch. Just released and soon to arrive on our shores, this is a masterful effort from the top vintage of the decade. Opaque in color, this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon is full of ripe plum and cassis aromas, exceptionally well integrated oak spice and tannins with a tame level of alcohol. This wine is a convincing argument for making Cabernet Sauvignon the national variety for South Africa..

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.

This hearty red wine comes from the Stellenbosch region of South Africa. It's dark in color and full of juicy red fruits, blackcurrants and vanilla bean. The tannins are silky and add a touch of elegance to this full-bodied wine.
