Waterford Cabernet Sauvignon

Another bottle from the rack, this time Waterford cab Sauvignon from 2004. I often find reds from south Africa have a peculiar woody, stalky character in the background. I don't know if it's the oak, some sneaky pinotage slipped in or just my imagination.
Anyway, at 6 years old, this cabernet is packed with juicy blackcurrant fruit, soft tannis and lowish acidity. No sign of stalkiness. Nice stuff. Should be about 20 -25 euro

Sounds lovely Gabriel.

I've often found that South African reds really need time to become enjoyable, looks like you hit this wine at a good point.
