Haut Espoir, Gentle Giant 2012, Franschhoek, South Africa

Tasting Note: A silky, Bordeaux-inspired, red blend with balance between fruit and tannin.

Deep-intensity ruby in color with a developing edge of garnet, this wine has an aromatic nose of raspberry, blackberry, violet and black plum.

On the palate the dry, medium-bodied red blend has a silky, creamy texture with ripe, well-integrated, medium-plus tannin.

A wine with elegant body and lovely aromatics to boot.

Bottle Note: Merlot, cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc, shiraz.
