MULDERBOSCH Faithful Hound Stellenbosch 2005
90 points, $22
Smoky, with incense and coffee aromas up front, followed by a focused palate of red currant, crushed plum and boysenberry fruit, all layered with additional cocoa, grilled herb and mineral notes. The long finish lets both the fruit and herb notes linger. —James Molesworth
