Juicy and ultra-delicious! Wow, it comes on with so many different aromas: mocha, fleshy blackberry and savoury goodness.

Andrew Bernardo Wine Journal rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

This wine has beautiful aromas of black raspberry, cherry, and lilac, with a refined, white-pepper and black plum tinged palate. Shiraz, Mourvèdre and Viognier. I'm 91 points on this red. Drink now through 2015. (ottawawinejournal.com)
This line of wine was inspired by an art project called Creative Block where the works of different artists are combined to create something new. Here, different grapes are blended to create something greater than the sum of their parts. Shiraz/mourvèdre/viognier combo more forthcoming, less stern than stablemate. 08 pepper and lily hints; juicy palate, controlled tannins ... touch American oak, drinking well now but structured for 5-7 yrs. Score: 4 (out of 5) Source: Cathy van Zyl, Platter's South African Wine Guide
