WE 92 Pts - According to Wine Enthusiast - A decadent blend of ripe berries and rich oak characterizes this wine; sweet smoke and baking spice mingle harmoniously with notes of mashed raspberry and blackberry, accented by hints of hickory-cured bacon and raw cocoa nibs. The medium-weight mouth is structured and bold, with chewy tannins and heady flavors of plum and berry preserves, roasted coffee and sweet licorice. The finish is long and dry, and although this would certainly benefit from 5–10 years of cellaring time, it’s approachable now with decanting.
According to Wine Spectator - A ripe and polished style, with a strong mocha note framing the core of blackberry sauce and plum coulis flavors. Dark licorice and Christmas pudding accents fill out the broad finish. For fans of the bold style. Drink now through 2015.
Tasting Notes - Dense opaque colour. This wine imparts perfumed layers of black fruit and sweet plum with whiffs of cinnamon spice and vanilla pod. The wood elements are delicately integrated. Masculine, yet smooth tannins sculpt a lingering palate of fruit filled pockets. 100% Pinotage. 14.% ABV. Rated 90+
