Critics Ratings

'Accessible, palate-friendly, excellent bordeaux blend: sample 99 super ruby, plump cherry/meaty/smoky notes, fleshy palate braced by soft tannins, 14% alc. Johan M’s favoured petit Verdot creeps up to 9% of blend (with 52% cab, 39% merlot). – Platter’s SA Wine Guide (2002)

'Typical Stellenbosch Cab from the 90's. Dusty and slightly herbaceous, within a powerful, deep frame. Velvety, luxurious palate with a long finish. Superbly matured. Drink now to 2025' – Higgo Jacobs (2019)
