Jordan Stellenbosch 2018 Cape Winemakers Guild Sophia Red (Stellenbosch)

Winemaker: Gary Jordan. There's a pronounced spicy warmth upfront on the nose of this blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 22% Merlot, 6% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petit Verdot. It leads with scents of mentholated herb, cassis, blackberry and sweet cigar leaf. Medium in weight and velvety in feel, it offers supporting yet surprisingly fine-grained tannins that lend a delicate structure to the just-ripe black-fruit flavors. Licorice and leather remain through the close. Drink now–2027. Lauren Buzzeo
