Wine Review: This dark ruby colored Pinotage is a really good value wine. It opens with a dark chocolate and black cherry bouquet with a hint of new leather. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and savory. The flavor profile is a cedar infused mild blackberry with notes of espresso, strawberry, bacon, and black currant. The finish is dry and its flavors fade away nicely. If you like South African Pinotage, you are going to like this one. You will love the price! Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: This fruit-driven Pinotage is alive with delicious cherry and vibrant ripe plum flavors. Hints of fragrant minerality and muted oaky tones all contribute to this wine’s complexity.
