Like making love to a sweaty farm hand with the smell of freshly picked berrries on her hands.

This is jumping out of the glass! Smoke, black pepper, and charred wood.

This is a delicious example of a full bodied Syrah, red and black fruits with a subtle smokey meat character, iron and spivey notes. Palate is full and balanced with a long finish. #Capesomm #WOSA

A bright balance between new world and old world. Clocking in at a minuscule 14% (by new world standards), a nicely perfumed nose and medium tannins.

But let us not get too serious, I also bought it because of the name.

A fresh and fruity and enjoyable wine but with some structure and depth.
