WS 90 - "This wine has immense depth of colour. It is bright with a very dark, almost opaque crimson core graduating to a youthful violet rim. Full ripe black cherry fruit and rich spice fill the first impression. The spice nuances are offset by tremendous dark fruit expression of black cherry and cassis. The nose promises depth and complexity expected from such a remarkably cool vintage. The ripe, dark fruit aromas follow through seamlessly onto the palate and are complimented by incredible texture, as a result of round yet persistent tannins."


WS 90 Pts - According to Wine Spectator - "A smoky, slightly earthy style, with mint and tobacco notes guiding the core of steeped plum and black currant fruit. Hints of bay and charcoal skitter through the finish. Shows solid length and definition. For the old-school crowd. Petit Verdot, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2017."

According to Wine Advocate - "The 2009 Constantia Glen Five is a blend 40% Petit Verdot, 25% Merlot, 17% Cabernet Franc, 15% Malbec and 3% Cabernet Sauvignon that is matured for 18 months in entirely in new French oak from several coopers. It has quite an intense bouquet with ripe blackberry and raspberry fruit, interlaced with cedar and mint, the oak just needing to be dialed down a tad. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins, a good level of acidity......." 40% Petit Verdot, 25% Merlot, 17% Cabernet Franc, 15% Malbec, 3% Cabernet Sauvignon. 14.5% ABV.
