    Winemaker Notes
    The color is bright translucent cherry ruby red. The nose is lifted, perfumed and aromatic showing blood oranges, white blossom, raspberry coulis, sandalwood and lush red current and small red forest berry fruits. Multidimensional and multi-layered, this wine has all the complexity of a Grand Vin. Dusty stalky spice notes, wet river pebbles, strawberry Bon Bons and red cherry skin spice. The palate does not shout, it whispers its complexity confidently, with ultra-soft, elegant, palate balance, sweet peppery red berry fruit concentration, strawberry compote, and suave textural precision.


    93: Wine Spectator
    Very suave, with lightly mulled plum, cherry and blackberry fruit flavors carried by substantial but silky tannins, while additional anise, blood orange and incense notes fill in through the finish. There's ample flesh here, but this stays very refined throughout, revealing a mouthwatering echo that hangs on beautifully. Syrah, Grenache, Cinsault and Touriga Nacional. Drink now through 2022.

    93: Wine & Spirits
    Duncan Savage, the winemaker at Cape Point, started his own label in 2011, focusing on small parcels of vines with strong coastal influence or from high-altitude sites. His Savage Red is a blend of syrah (67 percent) with grenache, cinsaut and touriga nacional. This is formidable wine, capturing the distinctive savor of Cape grapes and transforming what is often presented as rusticity (or, sometimes, ashen bitterness) into elegant notes of saddle leather. The wine feels cool; in a blind tasting, it brought to mind the coastal breezes that are such an asset to Cape viticulture, and so rarely preserved in the bottle. The fruit tastes of fresh red berries, bold, then tight, peppery and floral in the end. It’s a refreshing take on the Cape and is bound to turn some heads.
