Winemaker Notes

#71 of Wine Spectator's Top 100 of 2020

Blackberry fruit aromas with tea-leaf and cedar notes. The palate is rich and polished with dark fruit and mocha flavors and a finely balanced acidity. Long finish with the fine tannins typical of a Jonkershoek Valley wine.

Blend: 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Petit Verdot, 4% Petite Sirah, 2% Malbec, 1% Cabernet Franc

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
D 96
Decanter
American-born José Conde and team make various versions of Cabernet Sauvignon, including the premium, essentially single-vineyard Three Pines, and this one, which might equally be considered an estate blend: 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Petit Verdot, 4% Petite Sirah, 2% Malbec, 1% Cabernet Franc. It comes across as seamless, providing a sense of both poise and tightness. Red and black berries, violets and some leafiness plus a little reduction on the nose, while the palate shows pure fruit, bright acidity and firm but fine tannins.
WS 91
Wine Spectator

Elegant, with dark plum and currant notes that are lively and balanced due to a bright beam of acidity and soft tannins, lending support and depth. Not a big Cabernet, but one that would pair well with a variety of foods.

WE 90
Wine Enthusiast

Abundant sweet-spice aromas of cigar box, toasted oak and licorice take center stage on the nose of this wine, with a dark core of lush black fruit in the background. The palate is plush and flavorful, with abundant blackberry and cherry flavors that are softly framed by fine-grain tannins. It's enticing, surprisingly supple and easy to enjoy. Enjoy now and through 2026.
