Had the '12, the '13 is about the same. Aromas of tart berry fruit and earthy tones. On the palate underripe fruit flavors, some spice with harsh dry tannins. Medium finish ending with an alcohol burn. I would pass as well.

Marzipan, dried roses, sweet and sour on the nose, dried plum, red currants and red cherries. Faint oak notes. Sweet spices. Leather, game and tar on the palate and finish. Elevated acidity and tannins, not as hot - medium body. Light ruby.

Apparently, this wine is more luscious than my usual Fairvew pinotage. Lesson learned.

Aromas of vanilla and subtle spices. This is a lite version of something great!
