Tasting Notes
The Ernie Els Proprietor's Blend 2008 has a dark black core with glass-staining depth. It is bold and powerful, offering inviting notes of chocolate, herbs and drops of freshly brewed coffee. Cabernet Sauvignon offers the sturdy backbone with the Shiraz adding a savoury edge to the pure, sweetly fruited mid-palate. Spicy new oak checks the ripe, folding tannins, all balanced by excellent lift on the finish.
