Mulderbosch Faithful Hound 2014
32% Cabernet Franc, 26% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Merlot, 16% Malbec, 7% Petit Verdot
The wine’s appearance is marked by a vibrant, dense and purple hue. The nose exhibits berry fruit aromas of mulberries and blueberries, subtly framed by vanilla spice and earthy notes.
Gentle structure and finesse combine to make the 2014 so attractive. It has good weight and richness, with layers of flavor, yet there is a really classic element to the fine grained tannins, providing a moreish, savory finish.

A great gift for the dry red wine lover on your list.
Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Faithful Hound is a blend of 32% Cabernet Franc, 26% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Merlot, 16% Malbec and 7% Petit Verdot. It has a joyful and very pure bouquet with red cherry and red plum scents, the oak nicely integrated. The palate is medium-bodied, well balanced with grainy tannin, good backbone with a satisfying tobacco-edged finish. This is worth investigating and it has the substance to age well in bottle.
