The 2011 Secateurs Red Blend has light raspberry, briary and tertiary scented bouquet that is vibrant and demonstrates wonderful clarity. The palate is medium-bodied with fresh, ripe redcurrant and wild strawberry fruit. It is very pure with supple tannins and a refined, natural finish. This is beautifully crafted courtesy of the inimitable Mr. Badenhorst. Drink now-2015. - Neal Martin

Good full red. Musky strawberry and candied raspberry aromas are complemented by spices, minerals and tree bark, plus a smoky, saline quality. Suave and seamless in the mouth, with insidious smoky minerality giving shape... Good full red. Musky strawberry and candied raspberry aromas are complemented by spices, minerals and tree bark, plus a smoky, saline quality. Suave and seamless in the mouth, with insidious smoky minerality giving shape to the almost liqueur-like red berry and saline flavors. Finishes silky and long, with dusty tannins and lingering sweetness. Distinctly Old World in the best sense.
