As expected, this wine's vines are next to a gravel quarry in Paarl, a region known for producing powerful reds. Big flavors of black currant and berry are balanced by a poised acidity and spicy wood character, and while assertive, the wine maintains an elegant, dry reserve. Drink now or wait 2–3 years.
