I have had two other wines from Vergelegen. Both were excellent so when I saw this Reserve offering I had to buy it!  Medium intensity in the glass.  Black currants, olive tapenade, charcoal and pencil on the nose.  The palate has a ton of dark, ripe plums coupled with anise and violets.  Rich and tannic, this wine has weight.  The midpalate is all black currant.  The grippy tannins don’t let go- all the way through the medium length finish.  Dark fruits aplenty here.  91 points, drink till 2025.  5 stars again for this $22 bottle.  Salut….
