I find this Pinotage completely delightful for a grape that gets a bad rap. Bright fruit, mocha, smoke. Really quite pleasant.

Juicy extraction. Very easy.
Touch of acidity, great wood.

For a varietal that usually tastes like dirt, I find this to be local, delightful soil. Nose of chocolate, jammy. Again, tolerable! 2013 vintage

Easy drinking Pinotage. I don't mind the rubberbands. Smoky, vegetal nose but cranberry and char on the palate. Nice change of pace.

Super fruity and light bodied, this is not old-school stinky Band-Aid Pinotage, still this ended up in sangria. A very simple wine and very tiresome to my palate.

A great wine for $10. A smooth full bodied wine with cherry, tobacco, and a hint of vanilla. 😊

Smells and taste like burnt tires. Going to have trouble finishing this tasting.
