($40; 72% cabernet sauvignon, 18% merlot, 6% shiraz and 4% cabernet franc) Bright ruby-red. Complex but austere nose suggests cassis, black cherry, licorice, tar, herbs, violet and lead pencil. Fatter, sweeter and denser than the merlot/cab blend, offering greater palate coverage and a creamier texture, but there's a medicinal cast to the dark berry, chocolate and licorice flavors that calls for several years of patience. Offers a superb combination of sweetness with energy and finishes with broad dusty tannins and lovely floral/spicy lift. An impressively structured blend that remains light on its feet. This spectactular property, with a near 360-degree view encompassing Table Mountain, the Atlantic and the Indian Ocean, was purchased by Denise Weedon in 1993 (there were already some vines on the property and the new owner planted more in 1997) but 2004 was the first vintage to be released.
