2005 Coastal Region South Africa Cabernet Sauvignon
Dead ringer for Lot 18.
Powerful aromas of anise, violets, smoky oak, and graphite/tarry earth/leather. Fleshy mid-palate of cherries, loganberry, and raspberry emerges from dusty tannins after a good hour of air, so decanting at this stage is highly recommended. Balanced finish has good length with extremely well-integrated tannins, offering toasty mocha notes and tarry earth. Another "Wow! Never had anything like that before" wine (unless of course you have had Lot 18).
Style: Full, Bold
