    Winemaker's Notes:

    The Wolftrap is a red blend including Syrah, Mourvedre and Viognier.

    "The easy one" - Full of black fruits, red and black berries with some violet flavors. Smooth on the palate with some fresh aromas of wild strawberries and cherries.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Very bright red-ruby. Black cherry, pepper, tree bark and candied violet on the almost liqueur-like nose. Then juicy and vinous in the mouth, with lovely red berry sweetness complicated by pepper and a touch of woodsmoke. Finishes with a fine dusting of tannins and nice length for a wine in its price range. User-friendly and downright gulpable.

    This wine is great, even if it a screw cap. You can't go wrong with this wine considering the price.

    I was having fond memories of the Wolfpack when I ran across a wine that was perfect for my tailgating this season. The Wolftrap is a wine from South Africa that has all of the great attributes of a fall quaffer. The wine is made up of Rhone varietals grown in South Africa. It has Syrah, Mourvedre and Viognier. The touch of Viognier rounds out the flavor to add to the richness. The wine has great berry richness and a dark chocolate component that is lovely to drink. The interesting part of the equation was that the wine gets its name from the pioneers in the Franschhoek Valley who wanted to protect their group from Wolves. There have no sightings of Wolves either real or imagined since in South Africa. So when you are out tailgating, or just wanting to enjoy a bottle of wine with friends, remember The Wolftrap. Great value for money. Great way to pay homage to a bunch of fans that will not be forgotten.
