Wine Review: If you have not tried Pinotage from South Africa yet, this one from Beaumont is a nice entry level offering. This ruby red wine has a lot going on in its bouquet. It is reminiscent of a Grand Cru Beaujolais with some strawberry and licorice with hints of beef jerky. On the palate, this medium bodied wine is round, juicy, has no hard edges, and displays nice plum and beef jerky flavors with a slight touch of cranberry on the back palate. The finish is dry and lingers slightly. The whole time I was trying this food friendly wine, I was thinking it would be a great bistro wine and would pair perfectly with beef bourguignonne. Enjoy - Ken
