Kaapzicht Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

Deep ruby with saturated opaque centre; abundance of blackcurrant, fynbos and fennel with inky succulence and firm well-managed tannins; rich fruit is beautifully balanced with integrated oak flavours lending depth and complexity. Still somewhat unyielding of delights to come, but lovely structure and fruit will reward a few years cellaring with a luscious mouthful.
