Their Pinotauge rocks... This left me uninspired... OK for an everyday glass, but I don't think you would go out of your way to buy it again...

Decent wine but almost tasted sour? Like the winery but maybe wouldn't get this again.

Well made could complete with a Napa cab at twice the price.

I'm a little surprised by this wine. Hopping it's not that my palate was shot.

Strong berry flavors linger on the palette but a little too tart for my tastes with a cab

Leaner cab. Earthy and green pepper. Bland for me.

Dark ruby in color with a purplish rim.

Earthy nose of blueberries, cherries, chocolates, smoke, licorice, oak, vanilla, cherries, raspberries, earth, forest floor, smoke, green pepper and peppercorn.

Full bodied with medium acidity and long legs.

Bone dry on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, cherries, oak, vanilla, licorice, earth, forest floor, chocolates, tobacco, bell pepper and peppercorn.

Medium plus on the finish with firm tannins and black pepper.

A Nice Cabernet from South Africa. Earthy, and needs food to accompany it. Still young and needs a few years in the bottle to mature, but already enjoyable. I had this vintage a year ago and still no change. I'll try again in a year...

14% alcohol by volume.
