"This is a supremely well made Cape Blend from Kanonkop...The palate is very well balanced with fine tannins and crisp acidity that lends an appealing edginess..... the fruit comes through toward the finish and leaves residues of black pepper and tangy seaweed on the finish.....The bouquet offers a mixture of red and black plums, a touch of white pepper and a light Provencal herb note. It opens nicely with aeration."

"This represents a delightful wine that delivers well for the price....begins with juicy red and black fruit essence over dusty purple flowers with plum skin, blackberry and hints of spice on the nose. Medium to full-bodied, the wine is open and expressive in the mouth with a balanced structure and fruit that is more red-berried, with plum and cherry essence. Ending with a lingering finish and lifting tannins...Give it a try."
