Thelema Mountain Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon 2004

Another South African wine, again from Thelema - a renowned producer. This was a classic Cab, perhaps lacking in concentration, despite having reasonable potential. The flavour profile revealed cedar-forest, cassis and red fruits. This had excellent balance and was quite elegant and polished, but it lacked a wow factor. It was, perhaps, too thin for this price point.

Very Good+
$50 at Marquis

Small typo. You said "South American" when you meant "South African"
