93 pts James Suckling June 2018
A very spicy and peppery Bordeaux blend, showing peppercorn, ash, charcoal, cedar, tobacco, dark plums and dark cherries. Pine needles, too. Full body with lots of dark fruit, but it's all very well supported by structured tannins. A long, chewy finish. Drink in 2022.
4 ½ Stars 2019 Platter’s South African Wine Guide
Accomplished cab-led Bordeaux blend 15 (93 pts) shows ripe, elegant black-berried fruit lifted by fresh herb notes, wrapped up with sturdy tannins & cedar hints from 73% new oak. Positive acidity adds delicious length to multi-layered finish.
