Delaire Graff 2016 Cape Winemakers Guild Banghoek Cabernet Franc-Cabernet Sauvignon (Stellenbosch)

Winemaker: Morné Vrey. There's a beautiful lifted, spicy character on the nose of this wine, with oodles of sweet spice, toasted oak, licorice, tilled earth, pressed purple flowers and balsamic herbs all complementing a ripe black-fruit core. The palate is smooth and sultry, with fine yet supportive tannins that lend a strong structure and lasting grip through the evolving finish, which leads with plush red-fruit flesh and then evolves to waves of fruit skin, earthy spice and finally turned earth and leather. It can be enjoyed now, but should mature well through 2030. Lauren Buzzeo
