Excelsior Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 photographed by Jerry Hall on Winewaves & More.
  • Excelsior Estate is now owned by the fourth and fifth generations of the De Wet family, farming the land of their ancestors in Robertson Valley South Africa, about 100 miles east of Cape Town. In addition to wine growing, Excelsior has a long history of horse breeding which inspired the label theme. Cheers to their ability to deliver such a high quality and distinctive estate Cabernet at this price.
  • Excelsior Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 has lush aromas of cassis, vanilla, and bacon, with a reserved liqueur-like ripeness on the tongue and dusty tannins on the satisfying finish. Screw cap. 14.2% ABV. Local price/750 ml: 10. (included in Woodland Wine Merchant 6/60 deal, 2/9/17.)
