Winemaker: Rianie Strydom. This is a structured, bold Bordeaux-style blend of 74% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot. It opens with upfront aromas of black currant, plum, cigar box, leather and toast that carry through to the firmly textured, gripping palate. It's young and tight now, needing time to mellow and for the black fruit core to harmonize with the assertive pepper and leathery spice tones. Drink 2018–2024.
