Wine Review: This opaque and midnight purple colored Shirax and Cinsault blend from South Africa opens with a blackberry and black raspberry bouquet with a hint of leather and Slim Jim. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and juicy. The flavor profile is a cedar influenced plum with notes of red raspberry and cinnamon. There is a touch of olive and black pepper towards the end. This wine would pair well with a Swiss and mushroom burger. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This Shiraz-Cinsault blend is an opulent expression of berries and blackcurrant. The palate is smooth and lingering with refined, soft tannins. Crafted with a French flair, Le Rouge is fresh, balanced and appealing.
