Slightest bit of funk. Bit more tannin though would not be under appreciated!

At 10yrs on, it's behaving quite well. Nose has softened, and the tannins are smoother at the finish. Color shows age and reminiscent of a Malbec. Glad I have another bottle!

Whoa. Amazing stuff. Drank in South Africa and paired amazingly well with ostrich, kudu, warthog, lamb, and beef. Kept ordering bottles because I couldn't figure out the exchange rate. Pretty sure I'm screwed.

Nice rich flavour, could twin this wine with a nice rich beef, lamb or flavoursome fowl dish. Slight bitter aftertaste with quite heavy tannins but certainly a good drinker with great flavours.

Andre has produced a gem here! An excellent nose with a long satisfying finish. Highly recommended.

Smooth, full bodied, sophisticated palate. Richly dark colour. Elegant and satisfying. Great wine from a beautiful and traditional vineyard.
