Vinous 92 WE 92 WS 90 Pts - According to Stephen Tanzer - "Healthy red-ruby color. Sexy, slightly smoky aromas of dark raspberry, cherry, meat and minerals; this struck me as midway between Pinot Noir and Syrah. Rich, vinous and refined, with brisk acidity giving punch and lift to the savory dark fruit and spice flavors. A Pinotage with terrific verve and primary fruit character but also plenty of earthy, minerally complexity to give it another dimension. Finishes with a serious dusting of tannins and noteworthy energy. With its exhilarating push-pull of sweetness and acidity, this wine still requires a few years in bottle to harmonize completely."
According to Wine Enthusiast - Editor's Choice! - "This is a lovely, layered and complex Pinotage, with waves of earthy spice and brambly fruit that mingle harmoniously on the nose and palate. The mouthfeel is plush and velvety, brimming with rich wild berry, game, licorice and sweet smoke notes that linger long on the structured, evolving finish. It’s decadent and delicious now, but will also hold well through 2021."
According to Wine Spectator - "A ripe and stylish red, with polished edges and a core of blackberry, plum and anise flavors, backed by well-integrated toast. The solid finish features a nice graphite note. Well done for the varietal. Drink now through 2016." 14% ABV.
