This is definitely Pinotage, but there is a lot in here and even though it's not my style, I found it compelling and kept coming back to this one.

Among the best Pinotages I’ve had. You can taste coffee essence and wine was grown on ex coffee plantation. Exquisite and well balanced yet appropriately peppery

Heavy, dark fruit, rounded. But not enough complexity or finish.
