Wine Spectator’s James Molesworth Reviews Two Ernie Els Wines
In the December 31st issue of Wine Spectator, James Molesworth gives his thoughts on two wines from Ernie Els:
2015 Ernie Els Cabernet Sauvignon, Stellenbosch:
Fleshy and inviting, showing layers of cassis, raspberry and blackberry paste inlaid with anise, singed apple wood and mint notes. Nice charcoal frame on the finish. Best from 2018 through 2023. 3,550 cases made. 92 Points.
2016 Ernie Els Big Easy Red, Western Cape:
Direct, with a friendly blast of cherry compote and red licorice notes backed by a lightly toasted anise accent. Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cinsault, Grenache, Viognier and Mourvèdre. Drink now. 17,000 cases made. 87 Points.
