The surprising fresh coconut nose is a grabber that takes you to the fruitcake mid-palate ending with a dash of dried cherries, mocha, coffee finish. Decant and let it breathe.
Sagemoor (Bacchus Blocks 3, 9, 4 & 2)
83% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc
Cabernet Sauvignon enthusiasts love Sagemoor’s “old vine Cab”. The low yielding vines in block 3 and 9 are 43 years old and are as big as your thigh. These two blocks provide 83% Cabernet Sauvignon to the mix, along with 11% Merlot from block 4 and 6% Cabernet Franc from block 2. This expertly crafted 2014 rendition was surrounded by French oak for 22 months.
