The Wine Spectator’s South Africa expert James Molesworth is in with a review of the 2014 Els Cabernet, and it’s a good one.

Tasting Note

Ripe and energetic, with a juicy core of black currant, fig and blackberry fruit, carried by brambly tannins through the finish. Shows ample grip, but the fresh acidity is well-embedded. Should unwind nicely with brief cellaring. Drink now through 2018. 3,000 cases made.–James Molesworth.
