'Like the 2012, the 2014 has always been moulded an opulent and generous style with creamy overt black and blue berry fruits, sweet vanilla spices and a rich, layered, textured palate that just keeps on giving. Probably a vintage that won’t shut down, so if you enjoy youthful opulence, this is the one for you.' – Greg Sherwood MW, 95+/100

'This consistently outstanding red blend draws fruit from the Simonsberg, the Helderberg and the Polkadraai Hills. It’s a classic, refined, effortlessly stylish blend of mostly Cabernet Franc with Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Capsicum, graphite, cedar wood. mint and cassis and red plum flavours are embellished by aromatic, vanilla-scented oak. Drink 2017-25.' – Tim Atkin MW, SA Special Report 2016, 95/100

'Classically conceived Cape Bordeaux blend, a benchmark in SA for the style. Led by cab franc, the other 4 varieties supporting. 2014 subdued & restrained; elegant cassis, black fruit, cedar & charming leafiness, with understated oak (just 30% new) in perfect harmony.' – Platter's Guide, 5*
