Excelsior Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
|Region||South Africa, Breede River Valley, Robertson|
Spicy notes of whole coriander and green peppercorn dance atop fruity tones of black plum and berry fruits on the nose of this red wine. The palate offers more astringent and gripping black fruit-skin flavors that carry through to the dry, medium-length finish, alongside hints of char and sweet smoke.
A bit simple on the nose, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon delivers scents of wild strawberry with hints of black raspberry and subtle green savory tones. In the mouth, the wine is medium-bodied, angular and slightly clunky across the mid-palate but has structured tannins. It ends with a simple finish and would do well at a barbecue.
A softer version, with black currant and damson plum flavors, backed by firm and slightly astringent tannins. Moderate length. Drink now. 50,000 cases imported.
