Tasting Notes:
rated: May 1, 2004 , Wine Spectator
91 points "Flashy style, with lots of black tea, fig, sweet toast, black currant, bittersweet chocolate, plum and blackberry compote aromas and flavors. Long and lush, this is concentrated, but stays balanced and alluring. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2006." Best 2004-2006

"88-91 points: 14.3% alcohol; 52% merlot, 44% cabernet sauvignon and 4% cabernet franc; a blend of 31 components, according to Badenhorst. Deep ruby. Very ripe aromas of black raspberry, roast coffee and maple syrup; hints of crystallized fruits. Deep, dense and sweet, with a lush texture and the sweetening influence of 40% new oak. Evolving slowly. Finishes with big but sweet oak-influenced tannins and very good length."

4 stars "Dark color. Moka and blackberry aromas on the nose. On the palate, full-bodied and well-balanced with some complexity. Elegant finish."
