Boschendal Estates 2000 Cabernet Sauvignon (South Africa)
A few nights later I open this Cabernet Sauvignon from the same vintner and same year as the Lanoy blend (August 26, 2008). This one showed its age more on both the nose and palate; it was still quite enjoyable and still had good fruit character, but the flavours were more dried fruit, with a dehydrated/phony strawberry taste, kinda like those cereals with the strawberries - or the way Frankenberry used to fake that strawberry goodness ... though it was still very enjoyable. I used a Spiegelau Cabernet glass for this one.
