Kanonkop, Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

RRP £36.99

Vinous beauty. The bouquet is restrained, with black raspberries, fallen leaves, wet tobacco, freshly tilled earth and tantalising notes of graphite, Chinese black tea, dried violets and cigar box. Medium-bodied with silky sweet tannins and layered crunchy red and black fruit, saline cassis, chocolate, espresso roast, sweet cedar spice and subtle red plum skins on the finish. This is surely one of the greatest single varietal Cabernet Sauvignons found in South Africa.
