Wine Review: This almost Bordeaux like Cabernet Sauvignon is a vibrant purple wine from South Africa. It has a complex nose of blackberry, licorice, cedar and chocolate. I found it to be medium bodied, dry and fruit forward with juicy acidity. It displays plum, currant and spicy black pepper flavors in the mouth with moderate tannins lingering on a slightly tart finish. This is a good everyday Cab that would go well with grilled lamb chops. – Mark

Winemaker Notes: Beyond Cabernet Sauvignon showcases robust flavors that are reminiscent of ripe berries, blackcurrant and cherries. Subtle nuances of cassis, cedar wood and cigar box round out this well balanced yet elegant wine.

Organic status: not organic
