100% Cabernet Sauvignon

Tasting notes:
'Designed to impress & does. Intense deep colour from 4 weeks skin maceration; 2018 100% cab, its 22 months new French barrels create a powerhouse of cassis & black plums, cedar/vanilla spice. Ripe tannins, ageworthy. Improves on 2016 (4.5 stars, 94 pts) partnership of cab (53%), petit verdot & splash carmenère. 2017 yet to be released.' – Platter's Guide, 5* (95/100)

'Deep black to purple colour, with a youthful vibrant purple rim. This vintage the wine leads with black fruit as the primary component. Black berries and black currants in almost equal amounts, some cassis to creme de cassis and dried black cherry jam with figs and fruitcake. Warm aromas with inviting secondary flavours of crushed rocks, graphite and slate. Beautiful oak integration - notes of charred toast lifts the aroma of the wine. The 100% new oak is in perfect balance and gives great roundness to the wine. On the palate the sheer size of the wine is evident. The tannin, fruit and alcohol is in perfect harmony. Put this wine in your cellar for at least 5 years before opening. It will last for the next 50 years if cellared correctly.' – Winemaker

About the label:
The label was created by a local Cape Town based artist, Lorraine Loots and designer, Lauren Ann McCarthy. The swallow on the front label represents the winemaker's relentless pursuit of acquiring knowledge in South Africa and California to produce his style of wines. It further relates to the warm, agile personality of the wine. All labels were hand pressed using an old Heidelberg press.
