Cape Heritage 2012 Inception Red (W.O. Western Cape) South Africa
Availability: BCLDB Stores
Cost: $13.29 + taxes
Date Tasted: October 28th, 2015
Tasting Notes: Fans of Californian Uber-labels like "Apothic Red" or "Carnivore" will find common ground with Inception, a South African entry into the concentrated, sweet-red wine market offering a similar flavour profile of intense, bright, dark and red berry fruit with smoky oak and vanilla-mocha notes.
A blend of Syrah, Petit Verdot and Mourvedre, opening with pleasing, dark fruit and chocolate-covered blueberry aromas on the nose followed by a mildly spicy and full-bodied palate (mostly due to the residual sugar) with an acidic, mouth-watering, abbreviated finish. Drink now.
