A blend of 46% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Merlot, 12% Malbec and 6% Petit Verdot, respectively, with grapes sourced mainly from both Stellenbosch and Darling and few other varietals being sourced from outlying areas, allowing it to be labeled a Wine of Origin Western Cape. This has lovely fruit purity with dark cherry and dark currant with a hint of oak spice and chocolate aromatically. The palate is medium to medium fuller bodied with a lively stream of acidity giving this vibrancy to the darker red fruit flavors while the tannins are riper and finer grained which helps lead to an elegant but firm structure. This has a good 4-5 more years of drinking pleasure in front of it.
