Wine of the Week – Rooiberg Winery Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

This winery uses the best grapes in the Robertson area of South Africa for this flagship wine of its Reserve Selection. Its deep ruby red tones mirror its richness and robustness. The Rooiberg Cabernet is matured in French oak for 18 months during which it develops notes of coffee and dark chocolate. The wine is 13.5 percent ABV.Located in the Southern Cape, the winery was founded in 1964 and has been a top achiever in Robertson over the years, winning a number of gold and double gold medals. It’s in what it calls a “valley of wine and roses,” the Breede River Valley. Today the winery has 34 member farms.
