Ernie Els 2016 Cape Winemakers Guild CWG Red (Stellenbosch)

Winemaker: Louis Strydom. A blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Shiraz and 10% Cinsault, this is lush and brambly on the nose. It opens with enticing scents of ripe blackberry, cassis and mulberry, with additional notes of wood spice, cigar box, cedar and church incense. The palate is medium-plus in weight, with plush fruits and bold tannins that provide a texture like crushed velvet. The fruit is rich and spicy, with more cigar box, char, cedar and sweet-oak spice that carry through to the enduring close. Lauren Buzzeo
