Not your father’s Pinotage. Deep blackish red with color fully to the rim. Abundant nose of cocoa and blackberry compote. Full bodied palate echoes the nose with juicy medium plus acidity and moderate (medium minus) tannins. Finish is moderate to long and is easily recalled with a deep inhale. Pinotage has finally hit its stride and this is an excellent example of what the variety can be. Drink now through 2026.

This pinotage is still young and will mature well over 10 years, it’s soft subtle raspberry nose leaving a delicate mocha on the palate.

The oak flavors of smoke, mocha, and vanilla overpower the pinotage grape flavor and make it difficult to taste more subtle secondary flavors and aromas. Decant well. Otherwise, nice structure, good body.

Deep purple, nose of liquorice, mocha, chocolate, raspberries. High tannins, medium-bodied, great structure. Blackberries, raspberries, oak. Slightly musky aftertaste, would go very well with game or dark red meat. Great finish, very satisfying wine!
