Webersburg Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2002

In a slighter year, a refined and most drinkable wine that proves how pleasant thoughtful wine can be – not life changing, but certainly life enhancing. Drunk over a robust lunch with a friend who used it as a description of a wine that you would not be able to wow the world with (lacking structure and weight, he described it); it was nevertheless a lithe, balanced and enjoyable drink with a good moderate alcohol. At R130 form the restaurant I certainly wish there were more honest wines like these at lower prices, but I was very happy to have it instead of some turgid concoction that clamors for my attention. It is wines like these that will have people drinking and enjoying wine – surely the most solid foundation for wine culture.
