TASTING NOTE: Fans of fruit-forward Pinotage and of smoky, oak-influenced \"coffee\" Pinotage alike should appreciate this wine, which bridges the gap between the two styles. Matured on wood for three months, it brings a touch of creamy vanilla-mocha to a core of rich, concentrated, almost jammy berry and plum. This solid value is a great choice for bacon-and-cheese pizza. (Vintages panel, June 2019) Price $ 13.95
