Natalie's Score: 90/100

Mocha-blackberry goodness on the nose with supple full-bodied layers of dark fruit on the palate. The vineyard is planted on Zandvliet Mountain at a height of 172 metres facing the southeast, which helps ripen the cabernet grapes yet maintain their balanced acidity as well. Lots of coffee-espresso and dark fruit on the finish. This would be terrific with hearty meat dishes. Decant 1 hour.

Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: grilled gourmet Boerewors sausage, Asian chicken salad, sherry potatoes, chicken cacciatore, pasta.

Ex-barrel ’08 billows lanolin, violets, blackcurrant, milk chocolate; palate as layered, mouthfilling & enduring. As curvy as plush ’07. All reds in range 2+ years in oak. Source: Score:3 out of 5 (Platter’s South African Wine Guide, 2012) Medium-bodied & Fruity
