Cedary and slightly vegetal on the nose with a nice black currant/blackberry base of fruit and some earthy eggplant and mushroom overlays, a hint of mint and fennel seed. Moderately full-bodied and with pronounced acidity, this is a touch lean and focused in the mouth delivering a minty core of currant fruit that recedes on the mid-palate, leaving a bit of oak on the back end. The fruit, candied and blackberry-toned, returns on the long, bright, high acid finish only to slowly fade with the wood, ending with a nice pop of cedary spice on the finale. Nicely proportioned in a lean, fresh style. 88pts

Winemaker's Notes:

PRODUCER: Amani Vineyards WINEMAKER: Carmen Stevens HISTORY: Founded in the mid 1990s, Amani is currently owned by Rusty and Lynde Myers. With breathtaking views of Table Mountain, the Cape Point and False Bay, Amani is a small and personable boutique winery which boasts South Africa's first black female winemaker, Carmen Stevens. She crafts wines that are both stylish and well-balanced, seductive in their youth with lots of potential for long term aging. VITICULTURE & VINIFICATION: The vines are trained cordon-trained and produce a yield below 40 Hl / hectare. The varietals are all vinified in separate vessels. Only the Merlot undergoes malolactic fermentation. AGEING: The wines are matured in French oak barrels (35% new) for 12 months after which the wines are blended together and transferred to barrel for an additional four months. The wine is released 6 months after bottling.

Tasting Notes:

Eye: Deep crimson color. Nose: Soft spicy cinnamon appeal that flows over into orange peel covered with dark chocolate and black berry fruit. Palate: Smooth ripe tannins followed by black berries, licorice and ripe cherries. Good balance between flavors, alcohol and a refreshing acidity.
