Kanonkop Cabernet Sauvignon
Country: South Africa, Stellenbosch
Tasting Notes: The Cabernet Sauvignon spent 24 months in 50% new and 50% second-fill French oak. It has very good lift on the nose and a touch more definition and red fruit compared to the previous vintage. The palate is well balanced, with finegrained tannin, and chewy in the mouth at first but finding more precision toward the black-pepper-tinged finish. Give this well-made Cabernet another year in bottle.
Varietal: Blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc,10% Merlot
