Bramble, licorice root and fresh fynbos lead the nose of this attractive wine, grounded by bold black-cherry and boysenberry fruit at its core. Firmly structured tannins lend serious grip and texture, while fruity flavors transition into waves of olive tapenade, cured meat and peppery spice on the enduring finish. It's drinkable now, but should be best with a bit more time; drink 2020–2025.
