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.

Your comments on this wine:





Cork Lore: A cork tree must be at least 25 years old before its bark can be harvested the first time, but it cannot be used for wine stoppers until the third harvest. Cork trees can be stripped of their bark no more than every 9 to 12 years. In one harvest, enough cork is removed from the average tree to make 4,000 wine stoppers.
