Excelsior Cabernet Sauvignon, 2006


Excelsior Cabernet Sauvignon, from South Africa. Buy this. Today. Buy a case. If you do, you’ll find that fun wines can be dirt cheap: this retails for about $7 a bottle. Huge fruits, well-balanced tannins, lots of raspberry on the nose, blackberries, plums, and extremely potent mineral in the mouth. Full-bodied, with a smooth, spicy finish. It’s downright effervescent for a Cabernet Sauvignon. Just switched over to screwcaps! Ridiculously good for the money, but definitely only suited to certain palates.
