Read Decanter's tasting notes for Kanonkop, Cabernet Sauvignon, Stellenbosch 2005: a forceful, dense Cabernet that is only just reaching its prime.
Kanonkop, Cabernet Sauvignon, Stellenbosch 2005
Very deep colour for a ten year old wine and no lack of primary fruit on the powerful nose. This is a forceful, dense and structured Cabernet which is only just entering its prime. Plush tannins, ink, mocha, black fruit, some sous-bois, tea leaf and a mineral edge combine to make this a stand out wine by one of the Cape’s greatest and most classical producers.
