A complex aroma with prominent notes of cassis and cedar wood.
This is backed up with a combination of blackberries, raspberries, hints of spice and pencil shaving which is characteristic to Cabernet Sauvignon from the Helderberg region.
A well integrated wine, with subtle tannins and juicy mouth feel.
The dark fruit shows exceptional follow through, and the wine has great structure, and a long lingering finish.
