Patience required for full splendours of latest 01; richness, grandeur still sheathed in fine, dense tannin. Bit more powerful, demonstrative than pvs, but seamless cab/shiraz/merlot alliance (53/35/12), overall balance, distinction of this acclaimed grand vin remains. Regularly 20 months new French/American oak. +-14% alc. These need +-8-10 yrs.’ – Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2005, 5*

Offers lots of juicy blackberry, black currant and briar flavors supported by tar, spice, bramble and dark chocolate notes. Despite its dark profile, it's vibrant and open through the finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Merlot..’ – Wine Spectator 91/100  (2005)
