      Tasting Notes
      Journeys End 'The Cape Doctor' Cabernet Sauvignon 2011, 75cl

      New arrivals to these shores and indeed to James Nicholson Wines. These are some of the best wines we have tasted from South Africa and are delighted to be adding them to our fantastic range.

      Among the long rolling south-facing slopes of the Stellenbosch winelands, caressed by cool coastal breezes, lies the boutique winery and vineyard, Journey's End. With only a handful of premium, hand-crafted wines produced here, the focus is very much on quality.

      The Cape Doctor is the local name for the strong south-eastern wind that blows from False Bay and funnels through to Cape Town and Blouberg. The Doctor works his magic by blowing away smog and impurities, clearing the skies and making way for some fresh sea air.

      The Journey's End 'Cape Doctor' Cabernet Sauvignon is the pinnacle of red winemaking at Journey's End. It is only produced during exceptional vintages.

      Deep, complex fruitcake richness on the nose, with cassis and violets leaping from the glass followed by cinnamon and nutmeg spices, encased in a perfectly balanced, silky smooth, streamlined body. Misleadingly accessible, despite the current appeal, there is enough underlying power for a long future ahead.

      Pair it with rich meat dishes like shin of beef with mushrooms - or a simply cooked piece of Kobe beef - or a slowly braised lamb shank tagine.
