'Dollop of merlot, cab franc in ripe 2015, but varietal blackcurrant & cigarbox dominate aromas. Intense fruit, yet element of refined austerity makes for understated effect. 55% new oak, 14.3% alcohol in balance. For long haul. Also 1.5L.' – Platter's Guide, 4.5* (94/100)

'Matured for 16 months in French oak, 40% new. Complex aromatics with top notes of violets and some leafiness before red and black berries, pencil shavings, earth and spice. The palate shows pure fruit, vibrant acidity and fine tannins, the finish long and savoury. Full bodied yet elegant, this has both intensity and intricacy of flavour.' – Winemag Prescient Cabernet Sauvignon Report 2021, Top 10 (93/100)

'André van Rensburg uses grapes from "at least 15 different Cabernet sites" to produce this blend with 14% Merlot and Cabernet Franc produced as a 27,000-bottle blend. Grippy and well structured, with the backbone that's a feature of his red wines, pastille and dried herb notes and supporting minerality. Drink 2021-25.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2020, 92/100

'Savory cigar box and leather notes add complexity to the black berry dominated palate. Great concentration, substantial tannins, grainy and textured.' – Decanter World Wine Awards, 90/100 (Silver)

'The wine is complex, showing blackcurrants, spice, ripe plums and attractive wood aromas and flavours. It is full and rich with prominent tannns that bodes well for future ageing.' – Winemaker
