Wine Review: This dark red colored blend is made in a classic South African style. It opens with fragrant black plum and beef jerky bouquet with hints of cedar and black cherry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, balanced and easy to drink. The flavor profile is a black plum and Slim Jim blend with notes cedar and hints of coffee. The finish is dry and its mild tannins are very friendly. This is a very nice everyday red that would pair well with a bacon burger. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: This juicy Cape blend from South Africa’s premier Pinotage producer exhibits ripe, luscious raspberry and black currant flavors that interlace with hints of mocha, blackberry and pleasant herbal and spice notes. A distinctive smoky, earthy character makes this supple, full-bodied red the ultimate grilling/tailgate wine.
