Ntalie Maclean's wine pick of the week

Cathedral Cellar Triptych K.W.V. 2009
W.O., Western Cape, South Africa

Smooth and delicious with full-bodied layers of fleshy black plums. Smoky and smooth. Amazingly great price. This wine is a blend that leads with cabernet sauvignon, but also includes shiraz and merlot grapes. Just enough oak to bring this whole delicious package together. Good finish. Pair with hearty meat dishes.
