Botanica 2016 Arboretum Red (Stellenbosch)

In this blend of 49% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Merlot, 17% Cabernet Franc and 6% Petit Verdot, notes of dried cocoa-dusted cherry and raspberry candy unfold in the bouquet. The palate is soft upon entry, with similarly seductive ripe-fruit tones, but then turns more structured and angular through the close, with firmly structured tannins and a fruit skin astringency that shows good staying power.
