This Saturday we are excited to be joined by a wine rep from Baobob Wines, an importer that specializes in bringing quality South African wines to the States, who will be pouring two delicious new arrivals to the shop: Rainbow's End Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Be sure to stop into the store on Saturday, September 28th from 3-6pm for the free tasting event and enjoy this South African gem!
For the brother duo of Rainbow's End Estate in Stellenbosch, the goal is simple: produce the best Bordeaux styles wines in all of South Africa. After trying their Cabernet Franc and Merlot, the brothers definitely prove they have what it takes.
Hand-harvested and bottled without filtration, Rainbow's End Cabernet Franc is full and dry with savory complexity. Notes of leather, cassis, and warm spice on the nose gently lead into the smooth palate of mulberry fruit and dried herbs. Ready to drink now pair this red with barbecue or lamb chops for a staple fall meal.
Leading with aromas of mulberry, plum, and subtle chocolate notes, Rainbow's End Merlot is velvety smooth with flavors of red fruit, blackberries, and toffee. Great on its own or paired with roast chicken or mild cheeses.
