Cederberg Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

Cederberg Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

Concentrated dark fruits of blackcurrant and cassis, laced with a subtle mint undertone. 15 months of maturation in French oak lends a hint of tobacco leaf and adds an intricate smokey element to this complex wine. Expect this wine to mature gracefully in the next 8 years. A prime example of a well crafted South African Cabernet Sauvignon.
