Cheetah Valley Ruby Cabernet Pinotage 2001 wine review by (Billy)
This South African wine is a blend of 60% ruby Cabernet and 40% Pinotage that comes from the western cape.
nose: strong and sophisticated plumb with red currant.
palate:Comes out strong with big Cabernet flavors and structured mouth feel. Not overly tannic but well balanced.
finish: soft and unassuming.
At the $11 I paid (during a special at the store) I thought was a good value for the wine from a [new or newly branded???] winery in South Africa. The blend was expert and not overwhelming. Since it is a 2001, the wine shows some deepness and richness of color in the glass. It is ready to drink now.
