    Winemaker's Notes:

    A red wine created to celebrate the distinct palates of Ernie Els (Bordeaux style) and Jean Engelbrecht (Shiraz-based style) to crown their new venture.

    This complex nose opens with rich Cedar and Cherry aromas. Subtle white pepper spice combines well with a delicate floral and Toffee component. This wine has an extremely elegant tannin structure with robust mid-palate intensity. This wine also shows juicy characteristics brought about by the Shiraz component and a powerful finish.
    Blend: 59% Cabernet Sauvignon, 21% Shiraz, 6% Cabernet Franc, 6% Petit Verdot, 4% Merlot

    Critical Acclaim:

    Ripe but restrained, with a core of plum sauce, melted licorice, tar and braised fig held in check for now by ample fine-grained tannins. Licorice and black tea notes weave through the finish. Should unwind nicely in the near term. Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Malbec. Drink now through 2011.
