Lively.

Whereas the 2009 vintage of Cornerstone  from biodynamic producer Reyneke was a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Syrah and 10% Merlot, the 2010 is conceived as Bordeaux-style blend with 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Cabernet Franc and 12% Merlot and I think is more successful accordingly.

Perfumed on the nose, it’s medium bodied with red rather than black fruit, lively acidity and fine tannins. A pretty wine, it avoids the slight astringency which marked the 2009. Score: 16/20 and great value at R65 a bottle from the farm.
