Boekenhoutskloof Cabernet Sauvignon Stellenbosch South Africa, 2015, 750 (Seven Chairs)
South African wines are slowly getting the attention they deserve. There are many great wines from the area but many of the best never make it to our shores.
This great wine arrives in limited numbers. Typically bottles numbering in the hundreds make the journey every year.
If you like the red wines of Bordeaux this is a natural step. This wine drinks much like a Bordeaux twice it's price.
Blackberry, black cherry, and cigar box with cloves and earthy aromas. Nicely balanced bright acidity and fine dusty tannins bode well for long aging too. Enjoy now or wait 6-10 years for even more complexity.
