'The quality of the 2015 Paul Sauer alerted us to the fact that this was a special vintage for Cabernet Sauvignon on the farm and this wine supplies further proof. Sourced from six parcels, it has elegant 50% new wood, violet, liquorice and fynbos aromas, svelte tannins, graphite and blackcurrant leaf flavours and a volatile lift 2024-32.' – Tim Atkin MW, 2021 SA Report, 95/100

'Matured for 24 months in French oak, 50% new. A classic nose showing a hint of reduction before cassis, violets, leafiness, and some tilled earth while the palate possesses extraordinary depth and structure – massive fruit concentration but no shortage of verve while the finish is super-long. It has also absorbed its time in oak well and the tannins are wonderfully supple. Tightly wound and yet no hardness, full but not weighty, just about complete.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 97/100

'Dark and brooding, with intricate aromas of oak spice, black berry coulis, graphite powder, tilled earth, wet tobacco and chai tea. The palate is luxurious and utterly elegant, with layered flavours of blackcurrants, morello cherries, crunchy raspberries and dark coffee beans, all of which are framed against a sturdy, yet delicate latticework of finely grained tannins. A wine filled with poise and precision, waiting to unleash the promise of this majestic vintage.' – Abrie Beeslaar, Winemaker
