Stark-Condé 2017 Oude Nektar Cabernet Sauvignon (Jonkershoek Valley)

#92 Top 100 Cellar Selections 2021
Return to List

This wine, sourced from a high-elevation site, leads with earthy aromas of fresh mentholated herbs, raw tobacco leaf and licorice root partnered with snappy currant and blackberry liqueur tones. The palate is plush and robust from first sip, with big, gripping tannins that are tight and structured, framing the skin-driven black fruit flavors and fueling the length and astringency on the finish. Additional earthy tones of cigar box spice and chicory root unfold on the back of the close. Drink 2027–2033. Lauren Buzzeo
