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.

Classic. Love the coffee and chocolate notes, with a dry cherry finish.

this was a really good dinner party Pinot. Everything I want in a Pinotoge for the house; fruity, lively, a bit spicy. Not that my house is fruity.

Amazing smokey nose and medium to full body pinotage. Great with hummus and bread.

Super fun. A ridiculous nose of espresso and chocolate with a lushness on the palate. Pinotage for dessert, anyone?
