Winemaker: Coenie Snyman. A blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Syrah, 5% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot, this opens with bold, upfront aromas of cassis, blackberry, black cherry and raspberry sauce that are framed by hints of cocoa, charred spice and pressed wild flowers. The texture is firm and young, with assertive tannins and fruit-skin flavors that hold on long through the finish alongside notes of tobacco and bittersweet chocolate. Drink 2018–2024.
