Wine Review: In these challenging financial times, many readers are looking for Good reasonably priced reds. Here is a nice inexpensive option from South Africa that has some character. It opens with a smoky cherry like bouquet. This is a medium bodied wine that is soft and easy drinking. The flavor profile is black cherry and has nicely integrated oak flavors. The finish is dry and subtle. This is a good burger or spaghetti and meatballs wine. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: An abundance of ripe strawberries and cherries. A medium bodied wine with ripe fruit flavours and soft tannins.

Organic status: not organic
