"The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon (85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Shiraz) is made in the same round, light to medium-weight style displaying elegant red and black currant fruit as well as a hint of oak. While there is not much body, the wine offers a pleasant, silky mouthfeel. It, too, should be consumed over the next 1-2 years. Riebeek Cellars, located on the western coast of the Cape Province of South Africa, was established over 70 years ago. These wines are meant to be consumed early in life, and therefore the focus is on unmanipulated, unadulterated, straightforward, abundant fruit."
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Issue #208, August 2013)
"A blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Shiraz, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon offers tobacco leaf, red berries and blackcurrants, a light, subtle use of oak that stays in the background, and notes of baking spices. Drink it over the next several years." - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (March 2016), 87 pts - Excellent Wine Values for Under $25
"Bright dark garnet black color. Fruity, smoky aromas and flavors of grilled berries, marinated cucumbers, mixed peppercorns, and caraway with a silky, vibrant, fruity medium body and a tingling, appealing, breezy toffee, toasted cedar, and earth finish with chewy, fine, coating tannins and light oak. A smoky, crunchy cabernet with ample tannins." - Beverage Testing Institute (August 31st 2016), 88 pts Silver Medal - Highly recommended - Best Buy
