" BEAU JOUBERT CABERNET SAUVIGNON 2006 TASTING NOTES This full-bodied red wine has been aged for 15 months in 1st & 2nd fill, 300l French oak barrels. The flavours that come forward are blackberries and coffee with a slight hint of mint and lingering mocha on the finish. Soft ripe integrated tannins and fruit along with flavours extracted from the selected barrels create a wine with complexity, balance and excellent structure. Although drinking superbly now, this wine will age well, if cellared correctly, for the next 10 – 15 years; for its best potential look to enjoy it at 8 years. This is definitely a wine that can be enjoyed on its own or with fine food. IN THE VINEYARD These grapes come from four (4) Separate blocks of vines with the oldest being approximately 30 years of age; spreading just over 9 hectares or 22.5 acres. AGEING POTENTIAL Enjoy now or cellar for 7+ years. BLEND INFORMATION 100% Cabernet Sauvignon ACCOLADES Swiss International Air Lines Wine Awards 2006 – Seal of Approval "
