'This wine displays a deep maroon colour with a vibrant edge. The nose leads with classic This wine displays a deep maroon colour with a vibrant ruby edge. The nose leads with classic graphitic notes, dark brambleberry interwoven with aromas of five spice. There is a freshness underscoring these aromas with hints of dark blueberry, red currant and fynbos scrub - a classic expression of Simonsberg Cabernet. The palate is well poised and showcases an effortless balance between fruit purity and tannin weight. Flavours mirror aromas and all lead to a multi-textured, persistent finish.' – Winemaker

Tasting notes on the 2018 vintage:
'Farm’s varietal calling card, intricacy of best cab shows in 2018: wild ferment in combo foudre & tank, 22 months French barrique, 52% new, bottled unfined. Suave, restrained, but compelling & effortlessly classic. With dabs petit verdot & malbec.' – Platter's Guide, 5* (96/100)

'Dark black savoury, herby fruits, black tea, and orange peel with a sleek polished mineral palate. Very deft oak brings tannin and spice. Great potential.' – Decanter World Wine Awards, 96/100 (Gold)

'The Reserve Collection Cabernet Sauvignon also contains 7% Petit Verdot and 3% Malbec and is what Stuart Botha calls more of a "New World style". Incense and cigar box aromas segue into a palate of plush yet fresh black cherry and blackcurrant fruit. 2022-30.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2021, 94/100

'Beautiful aromatics of red and black berries, some pleasant herbal character and a hint of vanilla. The palate is full bodied with dense fruit, fresh acidity and fine tannins. Possessing layers of flavour, the finish long and dry, this is a very stylish offering.' – Winemag Prescient Cabernet Sauvignon Report 2020, Top 10
