Neethlingshof 2017 The Caracal Red (Stellenbosch)

This has an enticing nose right from the start, with notes of sweet cedar and cigar box spice atop a ripely fruited core of blackberry, cassis, mulberry and cherry. The palate is plush yet full in feel, with a texture like crushed velvet produced by the similarly intense berry flavors and the firm yet ripe tannins that provide a sound support for it all. The finish is long and evolving, veering from fruity goodness to pressed purple florals and sweet oak tones. Lauren Buzzeo
