The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon has an airy, cedar and graphite-infused bouquet that is one of the most Médoc-like that you will find in Stellenbosch. The palate is medium-bodied with quite rounded tannin. There is fine depth of fruit here, quite classic in style in terms of its tobacco and cedar flavor profile, though texturally more South African thanks to its roundness on the finish. Drink over the next 5-7 years, possibly more.
"This wine is based on our best block of cabernet — a higher elevation block with a finely textured decomposed granite soil with a clay sub-soil and a gentle Southwest-facing slope. The wines made from this vineyard (including our single-vineyard syrah) always seem to have good ripeness coupled with good natural acidity and a unique floral note that sets it apart from our other blocks of cabernet." - Winery
