2010 Thelema Sutherland Cabernet Sauvignon/Petit Verdot
Region: Elgin, Cape South Coast, South Africa
Garnet red. Nose was meaty and gamey straight out of the bottle. Slight marmite and smokey nose, layered with some dark cassis and wood chips. Moderate tannins (6/10) and a moderate body. Moderate and dry finish. Great airport wine!
