2006 Guardian Peak Cabernet Sauvignon (Western Cape, South Africa)

Dense and deeply colored with pronounced aromas of dark chocolate, a hint of smoke and a  light bell pepper note. Fruity with medium acidity, but the strongest impression is of alcohol. The finish is hot and shows a dense dark fruit core. Big chocolate covered ripe raspberry flavors with an ashy overtone and chalky tannins. 15.9% alcohol?!?! Are you kidding me?
