Rich and full-bodied, this stunning Cabernet flaunts intense flavors of dark berry, black cherry, mocha and spice accented by smoky, gamy notes. South Africa's equivalent of a "First Growth," this cellar-worthy gem was one of a handful of wines to receive the coveted 5 Star rating in the 2008 edition of Platter's South African Wine Guide.
"Ripe and full-bodied, offering delicious black currant, fig and licorice snap flavors that glide through the polished finish. A dash of loam adds length. Bottle age has tamed this, but it still has plenty of life. Drink now through 2011."
"Luscious aromas of black cherry, raspberry and coffee are followed by a balanced wave of mocha, plums, vanilla and tobacco on the palate. Spicy with ageable tannins, the wine would go well with roasted meat, beef or stews."
