Kanonkop 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon (Stellenbosch)

A sweet-oak overlay graces the nose of this decadent red, expressed in notes of baking spice and raw cocoa atop black cherry and currant fruit. Hints of tilled earth and foot-crushed violets add attractive depth and complexity, though they also suggest promise of more to come as the wood mellows. The palate is tight and firmly structured, with gripping, astringent tannins that need more time to resolve and better coalesce with the fruit. Drink 2026–2031. Lauren Buzzeo
