Kaapzicht Steytler Vision 2008 (Cape Blend)

Kaapzicht Steytler Vision 2008 (Cape Blend)

Very dense ruby with brooding opaque heart; tightly knit complexity reveals beautiful layers of black currant, spiced plum, blackberry and violets; firm, velvety tannins and cedary oak flavours adds depth and substance to the plush layers of fruit; exciting and stylish with great focus and purity permeating this black beauty.
