David Finlayson Cabernet Sauvignon - Great value!

Amazing Cabernet Value from South Africa!

2019 David Finlayson Cabernet Sauvignon...$19.99
Stellenbosch, South African
90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Petit Verdot, 4% Cabernet Franc
Produced from four outstanding clones of Cabernet Sauvignon planted on different sites in the Stellenbosch area. Made to exude absolute purity of varietal character and as such display true Cabernet Sauvignon cassis and blackcurrent flavours. The wine has a fresh, minty herbaceousness backed by mocca vanilla oak. Firm structured tannins and a long finish on the palate show good ageing potential.

Fresh and light on its feet. Polished black / red fruit flavours. Young tannin on the dry, long finish. Very attractive.
Rated 92/100 Decanter Magazine
“Aromatic, serious and still youthful, David Finlayson’s Cabernet offers a lot of flavour an structure for the price. Textured, deeply coloured and plush with dark cherry and fresh herb flavours and stylish oak. 2021-26”
Rated 90/100 Tim Atkin, Master of Wine
