rated: January 1, 2006 , John Platter
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."
