94 points Neal Martin (Vinous): "The 2017 Thief In The Night (another great name for a wine) is a blend of Grenache from the Soldaart vineyard, shared with Eben Sadie, blended with Cinsault and Syrah. It was aged for nine months in 2,400- and 1,600-liter foudres, along with two 500-liter French oak barrels. It has an extraordinarily pure bouquet of morello cherry, crushed strawberry, rosewater and minerals. The palate is well defined with a slight stalkiness from the 70% whole-bunch fruit. There is a tingle of Szechuan pepper on the tip of the tongue and great length to the finish. A storming debut. Drink: 2020-2035. (Aug 2018)"
92 points Wine Spectator: "A very fresh, unadorned style, offering a tightly focused beam of bitter cherry, blood orange and rooibos tea flavors racing through, flecked with a shiso leaf hint on the streamlined finish. Not big, but pure and persistent. Grenache, Cinsault and Syrah. Drink now through 2022. 608 cases made, 58 cases imported. (6/15/19)"
