Natalie's Score: 90/100

Lovely meaty quality to this wine with intriguing notes of fleshy black ripe fruit and smoke. Dried herbs and dark spices. Full-bodied weight.

Merlot Cabernet Franc food pairings: bacon-wrapped filet mignon.

The 2005 another big, assured merlot-based red [with] 27% [cabernet franc], dollop [cabernet sauvignon]. Herbal, tobacco & vanilla notes over Christmas cake fruit; palate a touch lean, with some dry wood tannins (18 months, 69% new oak), bright acidity. Score: 4 (out of 5) Source: Tim James, Platters South African Wine Guide
