2010 Anthonij Rupert Blend, Westerne Cape 6x75cl
Blend of Cabernet Franc with Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon
FOOD MATCHING NOTE:
Enjoy it with beef and venison
It has a perfumed bouquet with blackberry, iris, cedar and smoke, a little "old school" in style, although I appreciate the delineation and the freshness. The palate is medium-bodied with lighter tannin than I was expecting, but with satisfying dusky black fruit with a sprinkling of cocoa on the finish.
