Winemaker Notes

This elegant Bordeaux-inspired gem is South Africa's equivalent of a "First Growth." Rich and full-bodied, this stunning Cabernet flaunts intense flavors of dark berry, black cherry, mocha and spice accented by smoky, gamy notes and hints of tobacco.

Critical Acclaim

WS 90

This is dense, but has a sleek, racy feel overall, with lively black currant, anise and raspberry fruit laced with maduro tobacco, savory herb and iron notes. The finish has cut and length. Best from 2013 through 2020. 100 cases imported.
