    (2004 Vintage) Rating: 93/100 - As reviewed by International Wine Cellar in Issue 131, March/April 2007. ($95; a Bordeaux blend based on 62% cabernet sauvignon) Saturated ruby. Classic cabernet aromas of cassis, licorice, minerals, cedar and tobacco. Rich, sweet and pliant; stuffed with dark berry, spicecake and mineral flavors. A large-scaled, wonderfully ripe wine with terrific inner-mouth energy, solid structure and impressive building persistence. One of South Africa's elite Bordeaux blends.
