Tasting Notes:
tasted: April 8, 2006 , from a member
85 points "Body: medium-bodied; Great initial taste and mouth feel, but lacks complexity and finish. Gave my wife a headache."
rated: March 11, 2006 ,
" - 61 percent Cabernet Sauvignon and 39 percent Merlot. Medium red-purple in color, with bright plum, cassis and fine minty touches on the nose. Youthful and playful on the palate with plummy like fruit, balanced by firm yet softly accessible tannins. This is one of a new breed of South African wines today that embraces a newer, easier drinking style yet remains immensely complex and multi-layered. This is a "drink now" wine that's priced to buy by the case! Catch the wave now before the buzz starts...the press is sure to jump on this one! "
