Natalie's Score: 89/100

Rounded, delicious and sumptuous! Sink your teeth and hedonistic heart into this red. Lovely aromas of blackberry, cassis, spice, and plum. This wine is a blend of 51% cabernet sauvignon, 24% shiraz, 22% pinotage and 3% merlot, and it aged in oak for 18 months. Bring it on!

Travis Oke rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Love the tannins and fruit balance in this wine so served it with broiled chicken - at first glance it has some aged "browness" to the colour - that seemed strange for a 2008 until I remembered that a southern hemisphere wine is 6 months older than a n. hemisphere one and it's now 2012! That's a reall good 4 yr old wine I'm drinking.
Intense dark berries, choc liquorice & spice-cake on cab, shiraz, pinotage and merlot (32%, 27%, 25%, 8%) combo ’08. Taut tannins add tension to otherwise pillow-soft mouthful. Score: 4 (out of 5) Source: Winnie Bowman, Platter's South African Wine Guide
