07 shows vibrant, ripe cherry fruitiness that melds well with a classic, yet rich palate, with expressive soft oak spice. Firm yet fine tannin structure aids longevity. Best to keep min 2-5 yrs, as with 06. 2 yrs new French oak.’ – Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2011, 5*

‘Deep ruby-red. Aromas of black cherry, bitter chocolate and mint. Suave, rich and seamless, with its dark berry and black plum flavors complemented by strong oak tones. Savory more than sweet. À point but should hold well. Finishes with fine-grained, resolved tannins and excellent length.’ – Stephen Tanzer, Vinous.com 91/100 (2016)
