Journey's End Cape Doctor, Stellenbosch 2011
Powerful ripe fruit is lush and fleshy on both the nose and palate, with lots of ripe cassis and backed by dark chocolate. Eucalyptus, green peppery herbal spice and underlying mintiness. Voluptuously rich with good length.

A full-bodied Cape interpretation of a classic Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (58%), Merlot (28%), Cabernet Franc and Malbec, aged in French oak for 18 months. Now coming up for seven years old, maturity has given a velvety, chocolaty mellowness, but the spicy, cassis fruit remains effortlessly fresh.
