Terrific quality South African Bordeaux blend at a great value. Shiraz, cab sav, cab Franc, merlot and petite verdict blend perfectly to form a silky smooth well balanced wine. Recommended decant for 1.5 to fully open. Really superb notes of dark black fruit, cerise, plum, blackberry and notes of oaky aging with subtle vanilla and tobacco. 8.9/3.9

1991 vintage. A little week on the nose, but great structure!
