Black Rhino Café Cabernet 1 Bottle x 750 ml @ N 2,400
Crafted with French Oak to bring out the natural chocolate, mocha and coffee flavour components that compliments the blackcurrant and berry fruit influences of our selected cabernet sauvignon grown on the slopes of the Groenberg Mountain. Enjoy on its own. Pair with roasted venison, rack of lamb, as well as dark chocolates and chocolate pudding.
As the name suggests the Big Easy is bold in flavour and yet easy in demeanor. Pure, ripe, purple and red fruits immediately leap out the glass in an array of complexity, amplified by hints of rose-petals and boiled sweets. Warm notes of milk chocolate and roasted coffee round off wonderful complexity and depth. The Syrah dominated palate is juicy and succulent with the Cabernet Sauvignon backbone providing an inky structure. A dash of Rhône varieties give a dried, provincial-herb edge to the exquisitely balanced finish.
Somewhat boisterous and immensely enjoyable, drink the Big Easy over the next 5 years.

2012 was a brilliant Stellenbosch vintage and the Proprietor’s Blend takes advantage of the full ripeness, freshness and hauntingly rich tannins offered by the conditions. The nose abounds with dark-blue fruits, a hint of bacon, espresso and fig jam. Classy oak notes and a touch of truffle further tussle with the amazing fruit purity. The palate shows beguiling inky-black cassis from the Cabernet Sauvignon, providing fleshy tannins, a rock-solid core palate and towering structure. The large Shiraz component adds a spicy complexity and exotic edge, whilst the sprinkle of remaining Bordeaux varieties give finesse and depth. Roast beef and sugar-coated blueberries line the intense yet fleshy finish. This 2012 is the most backward vintage of this wine yet, it needs a few years to fully knit and it will age well for a decade of more.
