Balance – 2017 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot – W.O. Western Cape, South Africa

The nose is aromatic and offers a small freshness. It reveals notes of red berries, blackberries and small notes of ripe bell pepper associated with slight hints of cassis and gray pepper. The palate is fruity, juicy, (very) slightly tight, a bit gourmand and offers a beautiful definition, a fine unctuosity, suavity as well as straightness. On the palate this wine expresses notes of juicy blackberry, juicy strawberry and small notes of raspberry associated with slight touches of cassis, juicy wild berries as well as small hints of vanilla, bulb, discreet hints of spices and tonka bean. Tannins are slightly firm.
