Kanonkop, Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 Magnum

A magnum of the exquisite Kanonkop Cabernet Sauvignon.

A dense and full-bodied wine showing notes of supple blackcurrant, black plum, cedar wood and spice.

On the palate, additional characteristics of pencil shavings, tea leaf and molasses, balanced with a good acidity, integrated, ripe tannins and a lingering finish.

A wine made to last, Kanonkop’s Cabernet Sauvignon will benefit from further bottle maturation of up to 20 years from the vintage date.
