Opinión de los críticos
Mostly Cabernet Sauvignon with 17% Cabernet Franc and 7% Merlot, the 2017 Paul Sauer offers a juicy, red-fruited nose with heady floral aromas and oak tones of cinnamon, vanilla and sweet cedar. Medium to full-bodied, flavors of red plum skin and dark cherry juice cover the palate with rosewater elements before gripping tannins expresses on the tongue. The wine lingers with a richness and robustness with vibrant, juicy flavors of currant and cassis, ending with a long, succulent finish. This shares many of the same similarities in style with its 2015 bottling and should age just as gracefully.
Deep, brooding, intense wine with a lot more to give with a few years inh bottle. Very appealing nose with dark cherry and currant fruits and a hint of creamy vanilla oak. Lots of precision and class here.
Drinking Window 2021 - 2030
Winemaker: Abrie Beeslaar. An enticing smoky, lightly roasty accent leads the charge on the nose of this Cabernet Sauvignon-led bottling, with 17% Cabernet Franc and 7% Merlot. An earthy, tilled earth accent unfolds in the background and is complemented by dark, ripe fruit tones of blackberry, boysenberry and black plum. The palate is smooth and velvety, with plush, ripe tannins that lend support to the focused dark-fruit flavors as well as grip and length through the close. It's a bit shy and closed right now, but you can tell the stuffing is all there for this to really flourish and shine with a few more years of age. Try after 2024 and through 2035.
