About this Item

Blue Lady Cabernet Sauvignon, 2014
6 (1 x 6) 750ml
Situated in the Stellenbosch region, with a history dating back to 1771, Warwick Wine Estate was purchased by a Commanding Officer of the Warwickshire regiment in 1902 and he renamed the farm Warwick as a tribute to his regiment. In 1964, Stan & Norma Ratcliffe started redeveloping the estate, through the planting of Bordeaux varieties with son, Mike Ratcliffe, eventually taking over the reins in 1999. He helped further propel the estate upwards and at the time of this vintage’s release they had ‘listings in 4 of the top 10 restaurants in the world’. In 2018 Warwick was acquired by Eileses Capital, a San Francisco investment firm.

Critics Ratings

'Warwick’s Blue Lady Cabernet always comes from the higher part of the farm on the Simonsberg. Referred to as “the big daddy” by Mike Ratcliffe, the 2014 is a dense, compact, stylish red with inky depths and an undertow of minerality. Drink 2019-26.' - Tim Atkin SA Wine Report 2017, 93/100   'Best 11 barrels from a single Cabernet vineyard, 2014 expresses black & red fruits encased by authoritative tannins, dusted with tobacco, cedarwood from 26 month oak, 62% new. Decant now, or better, cellar - will reward the patient.' - Platter's SA Wine Guide 2018, 4.5*
