Cabernet-Shiraz Blend 2013

Big wine. Dark purple color. Blackberry dominates the nose with some floral elements. I’d say it’s 75% Napa Cab and 25% Brunello. Big tannins. Give some air. Not my style, but enjoyed its uniqueness. Drank a bit young. — 5 days ago

Aslina Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

I haven’t had a new world cab Sauvignon in ages. This maker gets some press as she is working in a former apartheid state, but really this wine deserves kudos: most of all contains tension & a wirey ness that belies its cab Sauvignon credentials. Serious chocolate notes. Drink it on cold room temp side & you will be happy. Good wet winter night wine. — 12 days ago

A reminder that sparkling wine can be the furthest thing from serious, and still incredibly delicious. — 5 days ago

Clos Malverne

Pinotage 2012

Happy International Pinotage Day. Here is a gorgeous Pinotage to celebrate with.

Deep purple in color with a purplish rim.

Nice nose of black currants, cooked cherries, oak, licorice, chocolates, vanilla, violets, coffee, Mediterranean spices, peppercorn, herbs, earth and dark chocolates.

Full bodied with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with black plums, black cherries, black currants, oak, vanilla, licorice, spices, chocolates, tobacco leaf, coke, dark roast coffee, earth, light vegetables and pencil lead.

Long finish with firm tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a delicious Pinotage from South Africa. Drinking very nicely now, with a great mouthfeel. Shows nice complexity and good by itself or with food.

Needs 3 hours to open up properly and show some tannins, so be patient.



This 8 year old is peaking now. I've had this vintage 5 years ago, and decided to let it mature for a while. What a great call, as it made such a big difference.

Rich and expressive. Tasty and interesting. Just Delicious.

I paired it with a cheese plate and crackers.

Aged in French oak barrels for 12 months.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

93 points.
