Nose is bacon, sweet tea, peppers, plum jam and blackberry. Taste is bold raspberry,and sweet tobacco, rustic veggies,sweet and sour sauce, jam. Balanced acidity with just a hint of ripe tannin that is greatly balanced.

Black cherries, plums and a bit of sweet fruit combined with rich soft tannins made this a group fave.

South African surf and turf.
Floral and purple fruit, interesting garrigue type angles.

This is not bad, or pretty good for a pinotage.

(**) ripe tannins makes this a grippy, earthy soup of plum and black cherry. Would pair nicely with green veggies.

So much charred wood and smoke! Liquid bbq! Not exactly subtle, but I could down a bottle of this...
