95+ points Neal Martin (Vinous): "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. Drink: 2023-2045. (Nov 2019)"
93 points Wine Spectator: "[$75 list] 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. (3/31/20)"
