95+ The 2018 Treinspoor is pure Tinta Barocca from Swartland aged in old foudres.

Its perfumed bouquet is much more floral than the Pofadder, with incense and pressed iris flower infusing the red berry fruit, and displays wonderful energy and precision. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, a fine bead of acidity and a crisp, quite saline finish that lingers long in the mouth. I noticed it tightening up in the glass, and maybe this will shut down for a while, so drink soon or cellar for several years. -- Neal Martin

Wine Spectator, March 2020
Blackberry and damson plum flavors are laced with notes of loam, underbrush and rose hip in this beautifully balanced red. Very elegant, with vibrant acidity and supple tannins, this moves gracefully across the palate...   Blackberry and damson plum flavors are laced with notes of loam, underbrush and rose hip in this beautifully balanced red. Very elegant, with vibrant acidity and supple tannins, this moves gracefully across the palate, never lacking intensity. Anise and black tea hints emerge on the long finish. Drink now through 2030. 608 cases made, 40 cases imported. — AZ

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, October 2019
The 2018 Old Vine Series Treinspoor made form Tinta Barocca begins quietly brooding in the glass with a serious nose that is dark-fruited.

On the palate, the wine has an unrelenting tannic edge with a firm mineral grip that grabs you by the gum line and doesn't let go. The tannic expression echoes of Nebbiolo from Northern Italy. Clearly it will take years to settle down, or you are going to need carpaccio. Full-bodied and tightly mineral on the finish, the wine is going to need five to seven years before you can properly enjoy this bottle by itself. - AM
