Protea Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

Cassis and blackcurrant aromas with light floral and herbal nuances. Elegant and genteel in a toned, restrained way the wine is full of cassis, cocoa and tobacco leaf with a dry cranberry element. The grip is firm but gentle and the tannins are ripe and silky, reminiscent of a ballroom dancer in smooth flow. Soft textured but structured, the oak is deftly handled and adds to its length on the palate.
