"Compote of berry fruit nicely rounded by chocolate and coffee notes. The tannin structure is round and soft with a lingering aftertaste. Enjoy with Karoo lamb rack, beef stews and pasta dishes." —winemaker

Blend: 61% Cabernet Franc, 28% Merlot, 11% Cabernet Sauvignon
"Deep ruby-red. Aromas of berries, espresso, tobacco leaf and graphite are enlivened by violet and peppery herbs; the Cabernet Franc component comes through loud and clear. Concentrated, sweet, fine-grained wine with lovely depth and no rough edges. Showing a lot of graphite and tobacco leaf in a Médoc way. A suave, mellow wine from an obviously warm year, conveying noteworthy generosity of texture and lovely breadth and finishing with firm but ripe tannins." —Stephen Tanzer, Vinous

"The 2012 DNA has plenty of green bell pepper on the nose, neatly complementing the delineated red berry fruit that is nicely focused - think old school Right Bank and you're most of the way there. The palate is medium-bodied with dry tannin on the entry, quite compact in the mouth with rigid tannin, a Bordeaux blend that will require 2-3 years in bottle. Reserved and Bordeaux-like, it is not a blockbuster Bordeaux blend, and in a way, it's all the better for it." —Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate
