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!

JFK... Aeronuovo... I find myself here once a month and always looking forward to my meal... I know, a place in an airport... Just try it... Anyway I have Baby Mack and Muga, Muga, Muga; on my mind, so I order this. Muga this is not, but certainly better than the Chianti they have on the menu. Some fruit, but you have to bury your nose in the glass to smell it... Hints of Vanalia and coconut, tells me this is aged in American Oak... Sure enough, the label confirms it. Not floored, but not under-whelmed either. Bottle paired my prosciutto and cheese and rigatoni Bolagnese perfectly . Five hours till civilization... BOCA
