This bottle looks up and says "when was the last time you tried a pilotage?" But I reply "based on this experience it might be longer til the next time". The bottle says "don't you feel you should know South African wines better?"but I am ambivalent. Then I was reminded that Robertson is a cheap date at $8. My resistance was crumbling since I'm always looking for an everyday bottle to augment my cellar but I pause to realize there is no overriding taste I can identify in each mouthful.
