About this Item

CWG Cabernet Sauvignon, 2007
12 (2 x 6) 750ml
Etienne le Riche was one of the founder members of the Cape Winemakers Guild, an association of South Africa’s finest wine makers since 1982, and the legendary winemaker at Rustenberg in the 80s. He started Le Riche Wines in 1996 with the aim to produce the finest possible Stellenbosch Cabernet Sauvignon. 
This 100% Cabernet Sauvignon was a Platter’s 5 Star and was offered at the CWG auction.

Critics Ratings

07 shows vibrant, ripe cherry fruitiness that melds well with a classic, yet rich palate, with expressive soft oak spice. Firm yet fine tannin structure aids longevity. Best to keep min 2-5 yrs, as with 06. 2 yrs new French oak.’ – Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2011, 5*

‘Deep ruby-red. Aromas of black cherry, bitter chocolate and mint. Suave, rich and seamless, with its dark berry and black plum flavors complemented by strong oak tones. Savory more than sweet. À point but should hold well. Finishes with fine-grained, resolved tannins and excellent length.’ – Stephen Tanzer, Vinous.com 91/100 (2016)
