Red fruits and green peppers show on the nose. On the palate, the small percentage of Pinotage shows in the mix, with green pepper and rubber cutting through red and black fruits. Tobacco and cranberry come through on the mid-palate. This is an interesting wine for somebody curious about South Africa wines. Drink with stewed game. Recommended. 86 points. DBH
