TASTING NOTE: Plenty of grunt in syrah-led blend from Swartland ... rich, red earth tones, black berries, dashes of spice jostle harmoniously on densely textured palate; friendly rumble of tannin allows for current/future enjoyment. Warmingly long. Score - 95 (Platter's South African Wine Guide, 2022) Price $ 41.95
