A very suave mouth feel – full and velvety.

Brilliant mid to deep ruby, the rim paling and showing a garnet tinge. A Cabernet that shows all the textbook ripe-berry qualities: blackberry bramble fruit characters are fleshed out with mulberry, but elegant restraint is present with tapered mineral tones. The oak is scented rather than sweet, showing cedar and sandalwood, and although still immature, aromas suggest pencil lead and tobacco leaf. The palate is packed with cassis fruit, mineral flintiness and top-quality wood.

Kaapzicht Auction Reserve 2003
“Exuberance” is the word here: from the deep - ruby hues that dominate this mulberry-coloured blend, through the nose and palate, each in his own way, the hallmarks of a great wine. The nose is cedar and sweet vanilla, followed by a rush of ripe, dark berry-fruit in profusion. The palate shows balance and harmony within its very elegant structure. A beautifully proportioned wine; tightly and neatly packed to provide great drinking pleasure.
