    Varietal: Other Red Blends

    Style: Smooth & Supple

    Item no. 102356

    Winemaker's Notes:

    A Cape Blend: 50% Pinotage, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc

    This tasty Cape blend from South Africa's premier Pinotage producer combines the estate's signature grape with the Bordeaux varietals Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc. Full-bodied and supple, it displays ripe, juicy flavors of dark berry, coffee, banana, and plum interlaced with pleasant herbal and spice notes. Its distinctive smoky, tarry character makes it a perfect match for grilled meats, barbecued ribs, chili and hearty pasta dishes.

    Critical Acclaim:

    This blend of Pinotage, Cabernet, Merlot and Cabernet Franc is full-bodied and complex, with layered aromas of cherry, banana and warming spices, and smooth elegant flavors of cedar, cherry, tobacco smoke and red berries. Velvety, soft tannins and a clean finish give it a classy touch. This wine can age, but drink now and you won't be disappointed.

    A friend who lives in S. Africa brought this wine to me. This wine is a great drinking wine to have in the house. Everyone will like it. It is not a celler wine, just ready to pop and great with or without food, especially cheeses and grilled foods. Though not apparent from the label, he mentioned that the winery emphasizes organic methods.

    We drank this wine while playing cards, sans food, but after a bottle of Prima. We thought it tasted odd. Not bad. Just really different. We decided to put an aerator in it to see if we would like it better, however that didn't seem to change it much (our aerator works well, so malfunction there.) We finished the bottle, and I would certainly be able to drink it if it was served to me elsewhere, but I wouldn't buy it again. Drank it in 2011. Maybe that was the problem.
