Velvet as can be I picture wrapping up in a purple velvet cloak (okay confession sorta-former goth I could do that right now), hiding in a cedar closet with a glass of creme de cassis, bouquet of lavender and dark music but not to dark. The more air it gets the more interesting things come out. This is the Joy Division of Stellanbosch cabs? Dark and deep yet consumer friendly. Not pop but not quite goth.

Dark fruits,spices nose, lovely tannins that lingers on a medium body wine. Very good for its price/value. Bought at Costco under$30. 2011 listed as best vintage as far.
