Kaapzicht 2017 Steytler Pentagon Estate Wine Red (Stellenbosch)

#97 Top 100 Cellar Selections 2021
Return to List

This traditional Bordeaux-style blend is pretty tight and closed right off the bat, so if you're going to try and enjoy it now, definitely decant or give it some time to breathe after opening. However, once it opens up, waves of black plum and cassis are layered with intense notes of cigar box spice and leather, all of which carry through to the big, firmly structured and fully gripping palate. But it's all in balance—the intensity is there all around, from fruit to structure to finish—so give this some time to truly come into its own and shine. Drink 2027–2036. Lauren Buzzeo
