Kaapzicht Estate Red 2010

Kaapzicht Estate Red 2010

Inky, deep purple coloured blend offers youthful, incensed aromas of sweet perfume, wild dark berries, sweet spice and musk. The palate is lush, supple and juicy, showing bold sweet fruit, kirsch and sour cherry, nicely framed by freshness, good wood integration and soft tannins. Delicious on its own or as a partner to rich venison casseroles or even strong cheese.
