Fragrant with Black fruits, cloves and white pepper on the nose and a touch of meatiness. Medium finish. Probably deserved a few more years in the bottle. The alcohol makes its presence felt at the end of the not so long finish. Well integrated tannins albeit slightly low on acidity.

Served on Turkey Day. Went well with meal. Love the blend. Light fruit, yet peppery.

A smooth and creamy blend, if the smell of freshly cut grass was a taste. Like cutting the cigar right on time, no wipe. If wine was a beer.

One of my favorite South African wines around the mid $20’s. Earthy goodness

Very remarkable red blend, earthy and some how light at the same time. Big nose and some lead pencil. Lots of fruit but yet balanced .

Amazing New World gem. Opened last night and has opened up deliciously. Pairs perfectly with beef tenderloin and mashed potatoes with chives. Opaque black cherry robe with black fruit as well as earthy notes on the nose and palate. Well balanced and a long, lively finish.

Great full wine, complex flavours. Enjoyed by all deep in Botswana bush. Personally I found the Rabin after flavours a bit harsh, but great wine anyway.

Good tannin structure and fruit . It's a lot of viridals in one wine but Is balanced ok.
