    Appellation: Franschhoek Valley

    TASTING NOTE: The wine shows a gorgeous black-to-purple color which is a true testimony of the quality and condition of the hand-sorted berries which made it into the cellar. On the nose aromas of black currants, creme de cassis and balsamic are at the forefront.

    Secondary to that the wine shows fragrant aromas of dried flowers, black peppercorns and allspice. Very complex. Tannins are present, yet very well integrated with polished finesse. On the palate the sheer size of the wine is evident. The tannin, fruit, alcohol and oaking gives this wine great elegance, body and weight.

    Put this wine in your cellar for at least 5 years before opening. It will last for the next 50 years if cellared correctly.

    Varietal: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon

    ​ABV: 14.76%

    With a red wine as robust and intricate as the Marathon, it is well paired with fatty meat like grilled lamb with plenty of rosemary or a marbled ribeye fresh from the barbecue. Duck or other game birds are an ideal match for the juicy, sweet berry notes in the wine.

    Aged, semi-hard cheeses like gouda and cheddar have enough flavour to hold their own against this bold red. If you prefer a more gourmet approach, a herb-encrusted sheep’s milk cheese will enhance the herbaceous notes in the Marathon. Roasted, salted nuts are the perfect snack partner.

    The Alcohol By Volume / ABV percentage reported is meant to be a general guideline given fluctuations in production, sometimes ABV is reported as a range (ex. 12.5% - 13.5%), etc.

    Wines labeled as "highly rated" are wines that at some point, including prior vintages, received excellent reviews and scores/points from established critics (and we do our best to report the specific vintage reviewed in the product description notes). It is meant to indicate (as a general guide) that the wine producer received accolades for that product for convenient filtering when browsing and searching.
