Flagstone The Music Room Cabernet Sauvignon, Western Cape

Flagstone The Music Room Cabernet Sauvignon, Western Cape

The Cabernet grapes come from three locations: the core is from an old block of Cabernet high up in the mountains above the hamlet of Ashton; the second block comes from the slopes of the Waaihoek Mountains and gives plenty of cassis fruit; the third block is in the cool, high-altitude climate of Elgin and provides taut blackcurrant and mint flavours. On the nose, summer fruits, cassis, fennel, mint, dark, bitter chocolate are all wrapped up in serious, warm toasty oak. The palate is all about chunky, chewy, integrated tannins. The rewarding mouth-feel is complemented by concentrated flavours of cassis, blueberry, wild mint and chocolate.
