Backsberg 2016 Family Reserve Red (Paarl)

This blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 33% Merlot and 17% Malbec is warm, bold and spicy right off the bat, with aromas of spiced plum, black cherry, cassis and blackberry all hit by a solid dusting of allspice and fennel pollen. The palate is medium-plus in weight, with concentrated black fruit flavors that are supported by moderately firm tannins and ample acidity to lend some freshness through the close. Lauren Buzzeo
