The Painted Wolf, is also known as the African Wild Dog – a highly social animal, each with its own ornate markings. The Den is at the heart of the pack, a place where Painted wolves relax and bond. The Den Cabernet Sauvignon is a classy, full-bodied and balanced – a social wine to enjoy with family, friends abd good food. A medium to full bodied wine with typical Cab flavours of black current, brambly fruit, cigar box augmented by toasty oak. The wine has a lovely rich texture, soft ripe tannins with a long fruit driven finish.

2013 Painted Wolf The Den Cabernet Sauvignon (blended with 5% each Shiraz and Merlot; all done in stainless steel): Bright medium red. Pure black cherry and floral scents, with herb and licorice notes emerging. Juicy, easygoing and bright; a light and cheerful wine with good intensity and no off notes to its bright red fruit flavors. I might have guessed that this was a particularly energetic Merlot. Finishes with firm but essentially pliant tannins.
