Neil Ellis 2012 Cape Winemakers Guild Insignium Red (South Africa)

Winemaker: Neil Ellis. This blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Cinsault opens with bright aromas of brambly black currant, plum, boysenberry, all dusted with hints of black pepper and licorice spice. The jammy, fruit-forward palate shows structured but not overly tight tannins and ample acidity, both of which carry through to the long, evolving finish. Drink after 2019. Lauren Buzzeo
