A blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon 40% Shiraz and 10% Merlot the outstanding 2009 Capstone (N.B. labelled "Cornerstone" in South Africa) has a fresh well-defined bouquet with wild berries dark cherry mint and a touch of wild heather. The palate is very well balanced with a slight garrigue character emanating from the Shiraz on the entry. The Capstone has fine but sturdy tannins and is very focused and intense. However the finish is more composed and natural with a rustic edge. This is an engaging red blend that is full of character. Drink 2012-2020+ -NM

Very dark color at the core with a muddled garnet rim. Powerful aromas of dark spice and black pepper emerge along with hints of black currant graphite smoke and grilled meat all tightly wound suggesting the nose will reveal more with air. Powerful and intensely flavored the fruit profile is focused with a long finish filled with spicy smoky tannins. An intriguing blend of clean bright fruit intertwined with slightly rustic notes more flavors are just waiting to be unfurled.
