Faithful Hound Red Blend - South Africa
South Africa is underappreciated in the wine industry and we love stocking the wines from that part of the World.
A blend of 33% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Cabernet Franc, 19% Merlot, 17% Malbec and 11% Petit Verdot from Stellenbosch, South Africa.
The wine has a deep, brooding color with a dark core and a deep mahogany rim. The first nose greets with ripe brambles, touches of cassis and subtle oak-spice. It is generous and inviting, but there’s also a subtle nod to classic restraint in aromas of leafy tobacco and freshly turned earth. With each sip, richly textured flavors of Christmas pudding and ripe plums course the palate. Offset by sweetly infused Jamon-Iberico notes this is a layered and complex wine, unveiling successive waves of flavor as it evolves.
