Winemaker: Frans Smit. This Bordeaux-style blend, made from 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 7% Cabernet Franc, is warm yet bright, with high notes of red cherry, currant, rhubarb cake and vanilla bean. Aged for 24 months in French oak, it's plush and velvety in structure, with loads of sweet spice and baked cherry on the palate. An enduring cedar note graces the close. Drink now–2021.
