Wine Review: This dark red colored Pinotage from South Africa opens with a new leather, smoky cedar, pomegranate and black cherry bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, pleasantly acidic and very juicy. The flavor profile is a cedar influenced red plum with notes of black pepper, black cherry, red raspberry and a touch of thyme. This Pinotage lingers on the finish and fades away nicely. This wine is food friendly and would pair well with osso buco. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Made in an elegant and traditional style, this Pinotage shows vibrant fruity notes of fresh cherry, and raspberry, with a hint of vanilla given by the oak aging. The palate exhibits savory tannins with ample fruit and a lingering finish. A small addition of Cinsault enhances the aromas and adds to the elegance of this delicate Pinotage. This wine can be enjoyed with traditional South African dishes such as roasted Karoo lamb or Springbok pie.
