This gorgeous Cape blend, made from 30% Pinotage, 31% Syrah, 30% Cab Sauv and 3% Mourvèdre, is ripe and immediately enticing on the nose with aromas of crushed Thin Mint cookies and iris petals mingling perfectly with the blackberry, blueberry and fig fruit core. Well balanced and firmly structured with a spicy, lingering finish.

This is aromatic, with black tea and singed cedar notes leading the way for plush blackberry, black cherry and plum preserve flavors. Nice velvety feel through the coffee-tinged finish. Pinotage, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Mourvèdre.
