Sometimes a wine comes along and puts itself in its own lane. The Kumusha Cabernet Sauvignon just drives like that. Smooth-bodied with a noticeable smoky side (hey, hello) this Southern African wine gets its name from the Shona word for “your roots” and it expresses those to the fullest. Bramby fruit, autumn leaves, and sour cherry mingle on a palate that finishes with an herbal finish. Buckle up.
