4/5

Constantia Glen Five Valley 2014

The first impression is that of a rich, dark-fruit forward wine encompassing aromas of blackcurrant and black cherries, yet beyond the foreground one becomes enthralled by hints of cigar leaf and spices that marry the ripe aromas in perfect harmony. The rich, ripe bouquet is a true advocate of the wine's cassis core. The dense flavour concentration follows effortlessly from the nose to the palate, where polished tannins provide great texture to balance the wine's powerful weight.

6 X Constantia Glen Five Valley 2013
On sale in many gourmet shops.
Deep colour at first sight. Very good aromas of vanilla. It reveals a kind of salty aftertaste.
