94 points "Color: dark; Nose: intense; Body: full-bodied; Finish: very persistent; Overall: bold; World class wine. 100 % Cab. One of the best wines I have ever opened. Fantastic nose, well structured, ample tannins and a very persistant finnish. W/ a couple of hours of air and right temtperature this wine beats the crap out most bottles on the merket. Once again, a world class wine." Best 2009-2020

4.5 stars "Standard-bearer for the Cape since paradigm-shifting 1989 which inaugrated a more luscious, fruity, 'New World' style. In great years like 2003, indisputably world class. 100% cab; very complete, harmonious, nothing overdone; resonates with cassis richness, freshness supplied by vibrant tannins. Great maturation potential. Oaking to match: Fr barriques, 50% new, 20 months."
