Winemaker: Abrie Beeslaar. Despite being a bold Bordeaux-style red blend, this offers attractive notes of pressed violet, black tea, singed earth and licorice root that add depth and complexity to the blackberry, cassis and plum fruit core. It's firmly structured, yet the tannins are not too aggressive, and the medium-weight palate offers ample acidity and supple fruit flavors to balance it all out. Drink 2018–2025.
