4 ½ Stars 2018 Platter’s South African Wine Guide
Pioneer cab-shiraz flagship blend with near legendary status, 14 (62/31) has a splash of merlot, dense, plush black berry fruit & massive appeal. Poised & supple with velvet-gloved fist, elegant spiciness & lingering finish.

Very solid, with a graphite spine running from start to finish, while steeped black currant and blackberry fruit rumbles through. Loam, mint and tar notes fill out the background. Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Merlot. Drink now through 2022.
