4 ½ Stars 2019 Platter’s South African Wine Guide
Classically styled to endure, but 16 (92 pts) shows well already. Heady nose fragrance woven into dense black fruit, earthy undertones & fine tannins. Follows form of imposing 15.

Focused, with smoldering tobacco and singed mesquite notes framing a core of currant and blackberry fruit, showing hints of earth-tinged maturity. The mesquite edge lingers through the finish.
