90 pts Tim Atkin Mw 2021
Aromatic, serious and still youthful, David Finlayson’s Cabernet offers a lot of flavour and structure for the price. Textured, deeply coloured and plush with dark cherry and fresh herb flavours and stylish oak. 2021-26
Made with more than a nod to the classic wines of the Medoc in the Bordeaux region, showing the period of time David Finlayson spent working at world renowned Chateau Margaux.
90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Petit Verdot, 4% Cabernet Franc
Produced from four outstanding clones of Cabernet Sauvignon planted on different sites in the Stellenbosch area. Made to exude absolute purity of varietal character and as such display true Cabernet Sauvignon cassis and blackcurrent flavours. The wine has a fresh, minty herbaceousness backed by mocca vanilla oak. Firm structured tannins and a long finish on the palate show good ageing potential.
