La Motte, Millennium, Franschhoek, South Africa 2013

For a commercial 100,000 case brand, this Bordeaux blend punches well above its weight. It is made up of Merlot (57%), Cabernet Franc (24%), Malbec (9%), Petit Verdot (7%) and a splash of Cabernet Sauvignon (3%). The end product is a seductive red with sweet mulberry and raspberry fruit with spicy tobacco and toffee notes. A very drinkable wine with easy tannins and juicy acidity.
