Kaapzicht Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

Intense ruby with deeply saturated heart; vibrant and vigorous Cabernet Sauvignon with powerful blackcurrant and black cherry flavours brushed with the herbaceous complexity of buchu, thyme and fynbos; muscular structure with finely honed tannins and cedary oak adding substance to the fruity core; well balanced and will develop over the next 4 to 6 years to reveal hidden treasures. Perfect with traditional Karoo Leg of Lamb with rosemary and thyme.
