Tasting Notes:

The Marathon exhibits an incredibly dense purple to black colour. Abundant primary aromas of sweet cassis, cherry preserve, blackcurrant that transcends to warm espresso roast, graphite, liquorice and camphor. The oak is beautifully integrated and brings great warmth and weight to the wine. The addition of Cabernet Sauvignon brings richness and individuality to this unique blend. On the palate, the Marathon is full-bodied with some power, yet it shows a majestic richness and extraordinary elegance that makes the wine accessible immediately.

The label was created by a local Cape Town based artist, Lorraine Loots and designer, Lauren Ann McCarthy. The swallow on the front label represents the winemaker's relentless pursuit of aquiring knowledge in South Africa and California to produce his style of wines. It further relates to the warm, agile personailty of the wine. All labels are hand pressed using an old Heidelberg press.

The Marathon is a blend of 42% Cabernet Sauvignon, 51% Petit Verdot and 7% Carmenere. The grapes were fermented in small upright French oak barrels and carefully punched-down not to over-extract the wine.

The Marathon was matured in 50% new, 5-year air seasoned French oak barrels for 22 months. After clarification, the wine was bottled without filtration to preserve its natural form. The wine spent one year in bottle before release.
