2005 The Berrio Western Cape Cabernet Sauvignon 82 Points
Cherry red with a russet rim already for a 2005 ??
Mature, evolved, gamey nose, tertiary earthiness and hints of dark mushroom, too much browning of colour for a 2005.
Savoury, cherry / cassis note, tight tannins, still integrating, medium to full bodied, honest Cabernet, good length and aftertaste.
From now until 2012, if you are not deterred by the brown colour.
