Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 93 Points (2015)
A striking wine, this brand has long been an advocate for Cab Franc in South Africa, and the skill and experience of winemaker Bruwer Raats absolutely shines here. Plush and attractive, yet well defined, it opens with herbal aromas of green peppercorn, tobacco leaf, bark and a touch of pressed iris that weave throughout the ripe blackberry, cherry and currant fruit. Medium-plus in weight, it boasts a crushed-velvet texture and slightly creamy impression, framed by structured tannins and superb acidity to balance. The long finish offers an exercise of evolution, from ripe fruit to fresh earthy tones and finally dried ash and spice. It's hard to resist now, in all its complex, layered glory, but this will mature well through 2028.

Tim Atkin (TA) : 93 Points (2015)
Using grapes from two of Bruwer Raats’ best (and highest) blocks, both of which face south, this is a very dense, muscular, sinewy Cabernet Franc that has an appealing combination of old vine concentration, herbal, lead pencil aromas and well judged spicy oak. 2019-25

Wine Spectator (WS) : 90 Points (2015)
Dark olive, bay leaf and tobacco notes hold the upper hand on the core of fresh cherry and damson plum fruit. Light brambly grip supports the finish. Should unwind with a touch of cellaring. Drink now through 2021

Robert Parker (RP) : 93 Points (2014)
The 2014 Family Cabernet Franc comes from the Raats family's oldest and highest vineyard grown in cooler conditions. It has an open and energetic aniseed-tinged bouquet that blossoms in the glass, hints of allspice and clove emerging with time. The palate is medium-bodied with a harmonious, smooth entry, perhaps a little more nimble on its toes compared to the 2013, with touches of oregano and white pepper sprinkled over the long finish. Whilst a different stylistic proposition to the 2013, it has just as much to offer.

Vinous (Antonio Galloni) (VN) : 91 Points (2014)
Bright ruby-red. Some exotic oaky lift to the aromas of raspberry, redcurrant, woodsmoke and peppery herbs. Fine-grained and sweet, showing much more ripeness and depth than the Dolomite Cabernet Franc, not to mention more sweetness from oak. Delivers classic Cabernet Franc character without being overly green, as the wine's herbal component is nicely buffered by its fuller mid-palate (it was also probably minimized by slower, better ripening of this fruit). Finishes with firm but fine-grained tannins and excellent length.

James Suckling (JS) : 93 Points (2013)
The nose is wonderful from the outset, offering blackberries, cassis, plums, treacle and hints of licorice and açaí berries. Some fresh herbs. The palate is very refined and balanced with succulent acidity and a long finish. Hard to resist now, but best in 2021.
