This wasn't as good as later vintages.  I can't quite say exactly what it was that was different but the balance didn't seem quite right. The cherries and tobacco are still nice, but the oak isn't quite as smooth as other vintages.

If you enjoy the wines of South Africa like I do, then this is certainly a wine I would recommend seeking out.  However, if you're more drawn to fruit forward or fruit bomb style wines - I'd say pass.  The terroir is really shinning through on this wine with a nice balance of earth and fruit to give this wine good complexity. Drink now.

Good structure and length out of this value priced cabernet.  Outside of the US there are still lots of value cabernets and this is one of them.  Perfect with a steak, the tannins melt away after decanting and the earth and fruit pour over the palate.
