Sonop – Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2015 – Western Cape

The nose is aromatic. It reveals notes of cassis, Gariguette strawberry, rosemary and scrubland associated with slight notes of flowers (violet, iris), licorice and a discreet hint of cassis. The palate is fruity, relatively gourmand, quite fleshy and offers a beautiful silky matter. On the palate this wine expresses notes of blackberry, cassis, plum and crushed strawberry associated with slight notes of licorice, flowers and a hint of black olive. Tannins are fine and well done. Good length and persistence.
