Excelsior Cabernet Sauvignon 2014, South Africa 

My Rating 87 Points.   

Price $10. 
Deep purple in color with a light purplish rim.

Fruity nose of blueberries, plums, cherries, barnyard, earth, leather, green pepper, chocolates, wood, vegetables, metals, black pepper and spices.

Full bodied and smooth with medium acidity and long legs.

Fruity on the palate with blackberries, plums, cherries, currants, oak, vanilla, licorice, earth, spices, peppercorn, leather, smoke, chocolates and coffee.

Long finish with soft tannins and raspberries.

A very nice, fruity Cabernet Sauvignon from South Africa. Inexpensive, at a great value and very tasty. Nicely balanced and enjoyable by itself or with food.

Needs at least 20 minutes of airtime to open up.

I paired it with steak skewers and potatoes.

14% alcohol by volume.
