Winemaker's Notes

A classic Bordeaux blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot.

Intriguing aromas of clove, sandalwood and fresh blackcurrant are followed by a velvety smooth palate brimming with ripe berry fruit and well supported by supple tannins and gentle oak.

Critical Acclaim

"A broad, plush, well-toasted style, with ganache and mint notes backed by flavors of fleshy plum sauce and blackberry preserves. A big, mouthfilling, crowd-pleasing style, delivering a plush finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc."

Learn About South Africa

South Africa A long history of growing grapes and making wine, but less of a history on exporting it, and even lesser on the quality aspect. At the turn of the century (1900, that is), a surplus of wine in South Africa created a hierarchy of cooperatives, the biggest and best known being KWV. This organization seemed to favor quantity over quality and had most...
