Vilafonté 2008 Series C Red (Paarl)

The 2008 Series C shows more grip and bruising structure than previous vintages of the Cabernet-based blend, with gripping tannins framing the hugely concentrated and heady blackberry, boysenberry and deep plum flavors. Tight and firm in the mouth, complex backnotes of black licorice, cigar tobacco and crushed African violet petals appear once the structure subsides and remain through the very long close. Hold until 2014–2016. Lauren Buzzeo
