"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."
