A classic blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc, this wine is the culmination of the Myburgh family's dream of making a truly remarkable Bordeaux-style wine.

Intense, opaque dark purple core with slight gradation to a bright magenta rim.

The nose is complex with rich cassis and plum fruit, a pronounced muskiness with hints of star anise, creamy oak and lifted graphite and cedar aromas.

The palate is rich and well structured with dense black fruit, fresh acidity and linear, satin tannins.

There is a delicious, layered textural quality from the mid palate which is very elegant and concentrated.

Very complex and complete with a long finish and great persistence.
