Morgenhof Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve 2001

This wine has a deep, almost black colour with a purple edge. The nose has layers of the following flavours, i.e. cassis, 'framboise', and sweet cherries. The palate is well structured with plum and black current flavour very dominant and ends with cigar box and spice. Even though this wine has been in new wood the wood flavour is very well integrated with the fruit flavours in the wine.

This wine will go well with most red meat prepared in a various ways. Other suggestions include rich fish, chicken casseroles, pasta dishes and cheeses.
