Winemaker's Notes

"An plethora of flavours is introduced upon the approach to this classic Bordeaux styled wine. The almost edible depth created by the dark, intensive color compels you towards further investigation. The nose is characterized by strong ripe, black fruits along with tones of nougat, cherries, liquorice and cedar showcasing a compelling display of dark, ripe elegance. A subtle minerality reminiscence of the Cabernet Sauvignonís dominance, reminds of hot, river stones. This perfectly balanced melody of fruit, oak and lush ripe tannins ensures another remarkable vintage, which raises the curtain for great longevity. Definitely the phantom of this Opera!"

Technical Notes

"55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc, 15% Malbec, 15% Merlot, 5% Petit Verdot. Aged in a climatized barrel room (16 degrees Celsius at 80% humidity) for 12 months in 50% new and 50% second fill, 225 Liter Oak barrels. Ninety percent French Oak and Malbec had the benefit of American Oak. 14.5% alc."

Rating

93 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"'Editor's Choice' Cedar, blackberry, plum, and dark chocolate aromas and flavors give this poised red blend a mysterious edge. Anise and pepper add a spicy kick, the whole package rolls out in one impressive, rich wave, ending with a spicy finish. An ageable wine with great character and poise. One of South Africaís best." --03/10

91 Points - Wine Spectator
"Ripe and polished, with nice density to the black currant and fig fruit, which is layered with bittersweet cocoa, tobacco and black licorice notes. The fleshy, integrated finish has solid length. Drink now through 2010." --05/09
