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, morello cherry and spice accented by smoky, gamy notes and hints of tobacco.

Critical Acclaim

W&S 90
Wine & Spirits

Capturing the schent of desert scrub, of the fynbos in the hills of the Cape, this is a savory cabernet with an emphasis on herbal complexity. What sweetness there is comes from the oak, while the fruit itself is tight, with a pleasant sage-like bitterness. This should be fascinating to watch as it evolves in the cellar.

RP 90
The Wine Advocate

The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon was matured in 50% new oak for 24 months. It has a well-defined, slightly leafy bouquet with touches of dark chocolate. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe blackberry and boysenberry fruit with a fine citric thread and a rather reserved but appealing finish.
