Cabernet Sauvignon 38%, Syrah 35%, Merlot 27% is the blend for this wine from Franschhoek, matured 10 months in 3rd-fill French oak barrels. Its a deep and plummy style, the merlot perhaps dominating the aromatics, but there's a cherry, even lightly minty and floral lift too. In the mouth a flood of chocolaty blueberry and blackcurrant fruit is pretty much a 'fruit bomb', but it is allied to some good tannin weight and balanced cherry acids to give this a bright and appealing character too.
