    Winemaker's Notes:

    The wine has a deep and intense ruby red color. The nose reveals lots of red berries and sweet black cherries, complemented by sweet vanilla and chocolate oak background. The smooth ripe, round tannins make this wine easy to drink while still retaining a full body. The balanced acid creates a firm finish that is complemented by a lingering sweetness.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Aged for 18 months in 2nd and 3rd fill barrels, the 2009 First Lady Cabernet Sauvignon has brambly blackberry and raspberry fruit on the nose with a touch of dried herbs and tobacco. The palate is medium-bodied with dusty tannins, fleshy black fruit and a smooth, harmonious, crowd-pleasing finish with a savoury edge. No, it is not South Africa's greatest Cabernet, but you cannot argue with the price. Drink now-2015.

    The Wine Advocate

    There's a pretty touch of carnation florals to the dried black fruit and black cherry center of this wine. Spicy notes of black pepper, whole clove and black tea leaves appear in the mouth alongside juicy blackberry and fudgy brownie flavors.

    A tart cabernet with some cool, green herb edges to its juicy blueberry flavors, this needs some time with air to smooth its sharp edges of tannin. For a steak.
