Kanonkop 2017 Cape Winemakers Guild CWG Paul Sauer Red (Simonsberg-Stellenbosch)

Winemaker: Abrie Beeslaar. An enticing smoky, lightly roasty accent leads the charge on the nose of this Cabernet Sauvignon-led bottling, with 17% Cabernet Franc and 7% Merlot. An earthy, tilled earth accent unfolds in the background and is complemented by dark, ripe fruit tones of blackberry, boysenberry and black plum. The palate is smooth and velvety, with plush, ripe tannins that lend support to the focused dark-fruit flavors as well as grip and length through the close. It's a bit shy and closed right now, but you can tell the stuffing is all there for this to really flourish and shine with a few more years of age. Try after 2024 and through 2035. Lauren Buzzeo
