The wine has a great complexity of black berry fruit, plums and tobacco spice on the nose. This wine has a rich, juicy entry supported by a dense fruit core and firm tannins. An elegant creamy palate leads to a long lingering finish. Excellent with North African dishes, spicy Moroccan tanginess or tagines, osso bucco and hearty risottos.

Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Game Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon has a direct blackberry and wild hedgerow-scented bouquet, touches of briar and cedar emerging with aeration. The palate is sweet on the entry with raspberry and wild strawberry fruit, touches of cedar and black pepper toward the conservative, traditional finish that needs more tension and complexity. This is a conservative but decent Cabernet.

Wine SpectatorDried cherry and currant fruit gives way quickly to raisin, cedar and licorice root notes, ending with a slightly trim and chewy feel. Drink now. 3,500 cases imported.
