Elevation 393 Stellenbosch 2008
93 points
Dark earth, roasted plum, singed cedar and coffee notes form the
frame of this old-school Cabernet, with bay, tobacco, mulled currant,
mint and steeped blackberry fruit at the core. The long finish
lets the savory notes play out beautifully. Cabernet Sauvignon,
Merlot, Shiraz and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2018.—J.M.
Sijnn Malgas 2010
93 points
This has good range, with blueberry, loganberry and blackberry
fruit pumping along, lined with texture-enhancing charcoal and
roasted alder notes. Shows lots of briary grip through the finish,
revealing a buried iron accent. Let this settle in the cellar for a bit.
Shiraz, Mourvèdre, Touriga Nacional and Trincadeira. Best from
2015 through 2020.—J.M.
Cabernet Sauvignon Stellenbosch 2009
94 points
Loam, espresso and bittersweet cocoa notes lead the way here,
with a dense core of steeped black currant and warm plum sauce
flavors. The long, charcoal-lined finish has a plush feel, ending with
a savory echo. Drink now through 2020. From South Africa.—J.M.
Syrah Stellenbosch 393 2010
94 points
Features a dark profile, with blackberry, steeped black currant and
melted black licorice notes rolled together. Fruit cake, plum skin
and bramble accents add grip on the finish. Though still rather
backward, this is showing more guts than polish now, featuring
loads of charcoal-infused structure. Should age wonderfully. Best
from 2016 through 2022. From South Africa.—J.M.
