Bergsig Estate Icarus Breedekloof Cabernet Sauvignon Touriga Nacional 2010 84 Points

Ruby red with garnet hue, brown rim, showing evolution.
Clean, moderate plus intensity, delicate plums, stony, earthy note, oaky.

Dry with dash residual sugar, savoury, moderate acidity, good depth, powerful structure, yet there is vibrancy, if only the very high alcohol of 14.5% abv could have been less, this would be a far more exciting wine with good drinkability!
