'Aristocratic cab-led (81%) Bordeaux blend with cab franc & merlot, 2014 exudes class & refinement. Plush velvet tannins cosset rich cassis & black cherry fruit. Barely emerging after 18 months in new oak, 4 years in bottle. Tops also-stellar 2013 (4.5 stars, 93 pts).' – Platter's Guide, 5* (95/100)

'Young, black, and dense. Inky black fruits, tar, cigar box, and coffee bean. A tarry, tannic palate with slightly raisined fruit.' – Decanter World Wine Awards, 92/100 (Silver)

'This ought to be one of the highlights of the Vergelegen range, especially given its price tag, but it's not a patch on the white at the moment. Maybe it was the cooler year, as this is firm, chewy and a little short of fruit vibrancy. Impressive, yet somewhat four square. Drink 2020-24.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2020, 91/100
