Wine tasting notes

The wine has a brilliant dark plum colour, with a ruby red rim. The nose has aromas of dark cherries, cassis and ripe plums. There are high tone notes of fresh red berries, nettles and mint. There is an underlying smokiness on the nose. The palate has stunning flavours of dark cherries, cassis and a certain savoury saltiness to it. The wine has a lingering finish with clean silky tannins and a touch of oak sweetness.

Expert reviews

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2013) - 88 pts

Nov 2015 - Neal Martin - The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon is blended with a bit of Merlot and Petit Verdot, and sees around 15% to 18% new wood. It has a straight forward red berry, winegum-scented nose that is accessible and generous. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin, nice and taut with a crisp line of acidity, touches of cedar and graphite on the finish. This is a well made, approachable, punter-friendly Cabernet Sauvignon.


Vinous/Antonio Galloni (2013) - 89 pts

June 2015 by Stephen Tanzer - Bright ruby-red. Sexy violet lift to the cassis and licorice aromas. Densely packed, juicy and quite primary, with the dark berry and floral flavors joined by a strong spiciness and accented by a pungent minty nuance. The firm tannins are a bit youthfully tough and in need of some time to harmonize with the wine's fruit. Pretty impressive considering that it's this producer's entry-level Cabernet.


JancisRobinson.com (2004) - 17 pts

Tasted April 2008. Dark and glowing crimson. Sappy Lafite-like top quality oak on the nose ? nicely understated. Fresh fruit, only medium weight and extremely drinkable, though not quite as settled as some of the old timers. When to drink : 2007 to 2012.


Wine Spectator (2012) - 86 pts

Direct, easy style, with a modest coating of vanilla over a core of plum and Bing cherry fruit.


Platter's South African Wine Guide (2013) - 3.5 stars

Now pure cab is leaner & more herbaceous than more intense, finer 2012. Supple tannin structure, smooth & warm courtesy
