Smells like its going to be decent, which is deceptive, because it tastes incredible. Beautifully balanced flavour, soft as silk tannins. Only some mild acidity lets it down.
Very rare blend for South Africa. Tempranillo 62% Grenache 22% Carignan 16%. Probably a good reason why its rare, it tatses decent, but doesnt knock your socks off.
Solid, reliable and sturdy. A bit of a Steve Waugh gritty rearguard fightback innings of a wine.
Smooth and velvety. Perfect accompaniment for the fillet steak I had it with, but lacking a bit of magic (possibly due to my tastebuds being drowned already) 35% Cab, 30% Shiraz, 20% Merlot and 15% Malbec.
Smooth, easy drinking red with an interesting blend of 35% Barbera, 27% Sangiovese, 24% Cab Sauv & 14% Nebbiolo, BUT at risk of sounding like an old fart, this isn’t what it used to be. I remember this blend as having a far more sophisticated flavor.
49% Merlot, 14% Petit Verdot, 12% Cab Sauvignon, 10% Mourvedre, 8% Pinotage, 7% Shiraz. Deep colour, liquorice flavours and that expensive wood and tobacco smell that good red blends seem to possess.
40% Shiraz, 21% Pinotage, 20% Cab, 10% Merlot, 9% Cab Franc. Soft and embracing.
35% Pinotage, 35% Merlot, 15% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Shiraz. Pepper and vanilla. A touch acidic, but,maybe that was the pepperoni
