Boplaas Family Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Dark ruby, slight garnet colour, rich cassis, tomato-cocktail and soft tannins, subtle mocha, cedar complexity from the barrel maturation; a full-bodied, barrel matured dry red wine with a smooth, velvety texture and long finish.

Carpetbagger steak – a beef fillet stuffed with muscles, oysters, fresh parsley and bits of bacon – accompanied with baby potatoes in butter and parsley and an obligatory garden salad with balsamic and lime dressing. This full-bodied wine can be accompanied by red meat dishes, poultry (grilled duck breast with Touriga and plum reduction) and game.
