New vintage, got a smoking deal on this old fave (for a supermarket red). Garnet red, medium pigment extraction. Raspberry, cooked meat and flower aromas on nose. Raspberry and blackberry flavors, slightly tart, some wood, vanilla and astringency on finish. Seems light on the alcohol; call it a “session Pinotage”. An under appreciated varietal, and a decent enough iteration here.

Oh no - broke my corkscrew, so at least this wine had a screw cap. Medium extracted pigment, purple-red in color. Slightly skunky note in nose. Banana (which blew off quickly) and soft cherry flavors in mouth; ten minutes later blackberry and black currant flavors emerged. Some medium-weight skin tannin across palate and front of tongue on finish, but a bit of aeration tempered those tannins into a soft mouthfeel. Past its prime, but typically a solid and super cheap choice if drunk quicker than I did here.

Easy-drinkable fruity wine with spicy and tobacco hints. Great for chocolate dessert or BBQ with your friends!

Prominent Banana funk that I can't wholly embrace. Not refined like in Kanonkop.

Not mad about it. Cherry and red fruit flavor profile. Simplicity.
