Critics Ratings

‘After sternly elegant ‘01 and lighter ‘02, the splendid ‘03 is richly elegant, fresh, firmly structured; fruit intensity harmonising with oak (half new), leading to long, satisfyingly savoury finish. Should develop well over 5-10 yrs. WO Simonsberg-Stellenbosch.’ -  Platter’s SA Wine Guide 2008, 5*

‘A powerful, brooding nose of tobacco, smoke and red cherry starts this elegant Cabernet from Kanonkop. On the palate, more warming spices and tobacco, with smooth, ripe tannins that are fine and velvety. Some oak offers spice, but the wine is extremely balanced and food friendly. The lingering finish delivers a spin of red berry and smoke.’ - Susan Kostrzewa, Wine Enthusiast, 90/100 (Mar 2009)
