Wine Review: This slightly opaque dark ruby colored wine opens with a mild oak infused black cherry and red currant bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced, smooth, and very approachable. The flavor profile is a pleasant smoky oak infused gentle black currant. The finish is quite dry and its building oak tannins linger nicely. This wine is a Very Good Angus bacon burger wine. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This tasty Cape blend from South Africa's premier Pinotage producer displays ripe, juicy flavors of dark berry, coffee and plum interlaced with pleasant herbal and spice notes. A distinctive smoky, tarry character makes this supple, full-bodied red the ultimate grilling/tailgate wine.
