Tasting Notes



VEGAN FRIENDLY!

The Painted Wolf, is also known as the African Wild Dog - a highly social animal, each with its own ornate markings. The Den is at the heart of the pack, a place where Painted wolves relax and bond. The Den Cabernet Sauvignon is a classy, full-bodied and balanced - a social wine to enjoy with family, friends abd good food. A medium to full bodied wine with typical Cab flavours of black current, brambly fruit, cigar box augmented by toasty oak. The wine has a lovely rich texture, soft ripe tannins with a long fruit driven finish.

87 pts Stephen Tanzer/Vinous June 2015
2013 Painted Wolf The Den Cabernet Sauvignon (blended with 5% each Shiraz and Merlot; all done in stainless steel): Bright medium red. Pure black cherry and floral scents, with herb and licorice notes emerging. Juicy, easygoing and bright; a light and cheerful wine with good intensity and no off notes to its bright red fruit flavors. I might have guessed that this was a particularly energetic Merlot. Finishes with firm but essentially pliant tannins.



Winemaker Notes

This wine was made from ripe grapes picked to deliver a rich flavour. Cabernet fermented in tank on a blend of French oak staves, and then completed malolactic and maturation on staves; the wine was finished off with 10% Swartland Merlot and 4% Shiraz, both of which were matured in a mixture of new and older oak barrels. This wine is good now, but will continue to improve over the next 3-4 years.
