90 pts Winemag.co.za April 2018
Johann Krige, co-owner of Kanonkop in Stellenbosch, once remarked that if you were really serious about maturing your wine, then you should buy the property’s single-variety Cabernet Sauvignon rather than the blend that is Paul Sauer.
The 2013 vintage spent 24 months in French oak, 50% new. The nose shows black and blue fruit, and quite prominent oak-derived notes including vanilla and pencil shavings. The palate is extraordinarily rich and broad – super-concentrated fruit, fresh acidity, the tannins providing a chewy sensation. Dense, powerful and still remarkably youthful (alc: 14.44%). If being built like a brick outhouse is a requirement to ensure a wine’s ageing potential, then this should last forever.
92 pts James Suckling June 2018
This shows some really nice fresh fruit in the form of just-picked blackcurrants, cassis, mulberries and orange peel. Medium-bodied, linear and tight. Drink now.
94 pts Tim Atkin MW 2017
Generally among the top varietal Cabernets in South Africa - no surprises given the talent of its winemaker - this is a serious, densely structured red that’s built to age in bottle. Incense and cassis notes are framed by savoury tannins. 2020-30

Winemaker Notes

Full bodied, deep ruby red colour. Attractive black currant and mocha flavours with a complex palate and long, dry finish.
