Frans K Smit Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2013

This was a very nice find. Baked berries on the nose with a touch of cacao. What I found when I tasted this was an amazing glad of wine. First off. Smooth, I mean wow. Then all the various flavors start dancing in your mouth. Black currant, oak, black fruit, tobacco, lesser touches of chocolate and earth. This has all the attributes of a classic wine. I am lucky to have been able to try it. — 7 days ago

Natte Valleij Cinsault 2018

Light in color, reminds me of the color of a poppy field. Beautiful acidity up front, red berries at the end with a good amount of tannin. Lovely with kedgeree, and would be great with any light fish dish, pork, or eggplant. Can’t wait to drink again - especially with the sun shining down outside! — 4 days ago

Kalmoesfontein White Blend 2016

This Kalmoesfontein White Blend from A.A. Badenhorst was recommended by Tony as a “weird and funky” pairing for Field and Main’s meal of the day! Beautiful golden coloring, honey on the nose that it keeps on he palate while remaining dry. Notes of mint, other herbs, slate and even a little licorice! Definitely weird, interesting, and makes me want to keep tasting - which I guess is the point. — a day ago
