Press review:

“A blend of 67% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Petit Verdot, 8% Merlot and 5% Malbec aged over 20 months in 80% new French oak, the brilliant 2007 Director’s Reserve Red has a broody nose of cocoa, dark chocolate and dark berries all cloaked in vanillary new oak that is very well enmeshed. The palate is medium-bodied with a very silky smooth entry: seamless tannins that are almost Burgundian in nature. It is still closed at the moment, but here, the new oak is very well integrated and absorbed into the precocious, sappy dark cherry, blueberry and cassis fruit. This is a gorgeous Stellenbosch red. Drink 2014-2020+” – 94/100, Neal Martin, in Robert Parker’s ‘The Wine Advocate’
