4.5 Stars Platter’s 2017 South African Wine Guide
Superlative & sensational are common epithets for this flagship cab-dominated Bordeaux blend. Lithe 13 & sleek 12 take up the baton of 10 (*****) after 11 not made. Plush, the dark fruit integrates the oak influence (65% new, 20 months) within complex, dense structure. For the long haul.

Black plums aromas with minty and green olive character. Balanced palate with a medium body, chewy tannins, and ripe plums. Savory finish. Well made. A classic blend that is always excellent. Blend of 67% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc and 7% Petit Verdot. Enjoy now.
