Riebeek Swartland South African 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon

Riebeek Swartland South African 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon, $9.00-$10.00, 88 points, poured a bright beautiful ruby with a broad clear rim-ring.
Aromatic floral strawberry was subtle, but lovely.
Medium-bodied with good acidity, easy-supportive tannin, good flavors that appropriately reflected the aroma, and highlighted this atypical Cabernet Sauvignon, but one that fits the pattern of many lighter Cabs.
Finished well on accelerating spice, a well integrated 14% alcohol, and a hint of spearmint.

  1. Ever had a Pinotage?
    Love the meerkats.

    1. No! I have my eyes on one or two!
      VG: I'll see you next term, in the new year.
