Single Bottle - Standard - 750ml
Distinctive, delivering a red pepper note that mingles with cherry and plum, black tea, spice and earth flavors, with a mouthful of firm tannins. Drink now through 2026. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 200 cases imported.
Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2012 Johann Shiraz Cabernet has an open, expressive cassis and blackberry tart scented nose with a cedary background and hints of baker's chocolate and yeast extract. The oak slightly overshadows the relatively elegant, medium-bodied fruit core, finishing with chewy tannins and lingering wood flavors. It would actually be an impressive wine were it not for the clumsy oak usage.
Aromas of dried meat, mushrooms, dark fruit and mahogany follow through to a full body, juicy fruit and velvety tannins. This needs some time to come together but is already a solid wine. Try in 2019. Screw cap.
