Deep black cherry colour. A plethora of mulberry, blackcurrant and allspice with subtle aromas of souboise (forest floor), pencil shavings and roasted coffee bean. Medium to full body, wet clay texture with nuances of Christmas cake and black fruits complexed with spicy new oak. Whilst drinking now, the fine grained tannins will resolve further over the next few years. Pair with game birds, roast beef and Yorkshire pudding; lamb potjie; steaks; meat stews; ratatouille; strong cheddar cheese.

Wine EnthusiastHere's a concentrated blend of 62% Cab Sauv, 10% Malbec, 10% Petit Verdot, 10% Merlot and 8% Cab Franc with assertive notes of cassis, black plum, sweet smoke and spice on the nose and mouth. Firmly structured and a bit chewy with a long finish.

Wine SpectatorThis shows grilled herb and tobacco notes up front, followed by a medium-weight core of red currant, licorice and damson plum fruit. The tangy finish lets herb and mineral notes hang. Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Petit Verdot, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Drink now.
