Groot Constantia 2015 Cape Winemakers Guild Gouverneurs Auction Reserve Red (Constantia)

Winemaker: Boela Gerber. This Cabernet Sauvignon-dominant wine, made with 10% Petit Verdot, offers initial aromas of blackcurrant leaf and fresh menthol atop the blackberry, cassis and black plum core. Additional glimmers of black tea, cigar box and leather spice add depth and interest to the bouquet, and develop with a bit more intensity on the long finish. It's smooth on entry, but framed by firm tannins from the midpalate on, lending a serious structure to the plush fruit flavors. Drink 2023-2028. Lauren Buzzeo
