Kanonkop 2018 Cape Winemakers Guild CWG Paul Sauer Red (Simonsberg-Stellenbosch)

Winemaker: Abrie Beeslaar. Crème de cassis, blackberry leaf and crushed violet petals lead the bouquet of this rich-smelling blend of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc and 15% Merlot. Additional fruity inflections of black cherry and plum form a grounded core for the more herbal elements of the sip. It's medium in weight and structured in feel, with a texture like crushed velvet and plush, ripe blackberry and cassis flavors that transition into the lingering finish, which then resolves into notes of licorice and wood spice. Drink now–2029. Lauren Buzzeo
