STARK-CONDÉ Cabernet Sauvignon 2019
(Stellenbosch, South Africa) $25
Cabernet Sauvignon is one of South Africa’s leading red grapes, and the top wines are both fantastic—and fantastically priced. Bold, sleek, and delicious, this Cabernet from Stark-Condé leads with a big wave of rich blackberry and cassis flavors, then finishes with a streak of coffee, dark chocolate and mineral notes. The impressive tannin here calls for some grilled chops. The story of Stark-Condé is an amazing coming-together of nationalities and cultures—Japanese, Cuban, American, and of course South African. Black winemaker Rüdger van Wyk is a rising star.
