Cathedral Cellar Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

Western Cape, South AfricaThis old school SAF Cab will remind you of the burnt rubber / roasted root veg wines of the past. With fruit from Stellenbosch, Swartland, Darling, Voor-Paardeberg, Botrivier, Wellington, and Paarl, this is drenched in oak (a combo of 95% French / 5% American, and 35% new), imparting toast, roast, smoked meats onto the ripe cherry fruit. Tannins are sanded soft, and the finish is flushed with cedar and spice. If you want to taste what's really happening in South Africa within the past decade or so, look further.Tasted: 13 April 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 17.99 BCLS AB 19.00 fine wine shops MB 17.95 Banville and Jones ON 17.95 Vintages Essentials QC 17.95 SAQ NFL 18.25 NLLC Producer: KWV InternationalDistributors: Dandurand
