Kanonkop 2008 Paul Sauer Red (Simonsberg-Stellenbosch)

Country: South Africa

Province: Simonsberg-Stellenbosch


Variety: Bordeaux-style Red Blend

Winery: Kanonkop

Points: 92

Taster: Lauren Buzzeo

A blend of 69% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Cabernet Franc and 9% Merlot, this is a dense and brooding wine, with dark notes of cassis, licorice, black plum, date and cigar-box spice on the nose and in the mouth. The palate is firmly structured, with medium tannins and balanced alcohol that lend the wine a crushed-velvet texture. Glimmers of charred oak and toasted spice linger long on the finish. Delicious now, but should develop more layer and nuance with time; drink through 2018.
