Excelsior Cabernet Sauvignon

Great buy from South Africa
2015 Excelsior Cabernet Sauvignon...$7.49
90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Petit Verdot
Bright ruby-red. Lovely leafy lift to the raspberry, currant and licorice aromas. Distinctly leafy and peppery but also with attractive sweetness to its red berry fruit. Finishes with ripe, sweet tannins and good length. A solid inexpensive Cabernet with immediate appeal
Rated 87/100 Stephen Tanzer, Vinous Media

"This crowd pleasing Cabernet – consistently named a Wine Enthusiast “Best Buy” – delivers serious bang for the buck! It displays ripe blackcurrant and dried herb characters on the nose, which are supported by spicy oak notes. The palate is smooth and soft, with appealing ripe tannins and a long finish." -- Winery
