Natalie's Score: 90/100

This full-bodied red wine is at or just slightly past peak. Still drinking beautifully, but the fruit is completely mature now and I suggest cracking it open now.

Linda rated this wine as 94/100 with the following review:

Smooth, goes great with steak, let breathe, definitely buy again - drinks like a $35 bottle of wine
Louise Wilson ISG Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Spicy black fruit and toasty oak on the nose are joined by hints of bramble and campfire smoke on the palate. The tannins have had a chance to soften and the oak has become integrated. Drinking well now and over the next 2 years. Pair with charbroiled anything.
The 2006 includes a good dollop cab franc, all matured in mostly older oak. Ripe black-berried fruit aromas, earthy undertones. Full bodied; firm, fine tannins, good acidity, lingering finish. Score - 4 Stars out of 5 (Excellent) Source: Jörg Pfützner, Platter's South African Wine Guide, 2013
