    Winemaker's Notes:

    The grapes for this wine are from 4 different cabernet vineyards and our best merlot and cabernet franc vineyards, all at a mix of different elevations. Although all are on the decomposed granite soils typical of the hillsides in Jonkershoek, the soil textures vary quite a lot and that, together with the differences in elevations and clones, gives a variety of different flavour profiles to the grapes.

    This is the first year that we included Petit Verdot in the blend. Bottled unfined and unfiltered after 22 months barrel maturation.

    Critical Acclaim:

    This cuts a broad swath, with dark plum, blackberry and currant paste notes laced with mint, black tea and mocha. The big, rich, toasty finish offers lots of character. Drink now through 2013. 550 cases imported.

    Cigar box and mulberry spice aromas lead the nose of this Cab, with fruity notes of black berry and cassis providing the backdrop. Full and lush in the mouth, the ripe black fruit carries through to the finish alongside accents of roasted coffee grounds. 550 cases imported.
