Ernie Els Proprietor`s Blend 2011

£27.20
Tasting Note: 

The 2011 Proprietor’s Blend exhibits an inky deep, black cherry hue and purple rim. Deep, exotic notes on the nose, whiffs of spear mint and flakes of dark chocolate compliment a melange of dense blue berry fruits. The strong Cabernet Sauvignon influence adds a salty liquorice attack following to cassis, grilled herbs and meaty edge from the dollop of Shiraz. Though full-bodied and rich, the mid-palate is fine and lively, leading to a polished, pure velvety, sweet-fruited finish. The serious tannins seem gently balanced, offering ample support for 5 - 10 years cellaring.
