"Coffee, cigarbox and mocha aromas and flavors characterize this Rietvallei red. Complex and assertive, the wine unfolds with a chewy but poised intensity. The lingering finish has a tobacco-like touch. Pair with smoked meats, rich stews."- Wine Enthusiast
The 2007 Estate Cab from Rietvallei is holding up very well, it’s been stored properly and was clearly built to age. Ripe black cherry, blackberry and cassis mix on the classic palate, with notes of dark earth, graphite and cedar adding complexity. The wine is still drinking in its prime, with dark chocolate and roasted coffee notes highlighting the chewy tannin and balanced acidity. Enjoy now through 2020. - DZ Jan 2017
