Kaapzicht Estate Red 2007

Kaapzicht Estate Red 2007

Deep ruby with some roasted spice, beetroot and mixed berry flavours with fruity succulence on the mid-palate; ripe tannins enfold multi-layered fruit and subtle oak aromatics to create a delicious mouthful. Equal quantities of Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz in satisfying harmony.
