Dornier Pinotage 2004 wine review by Billy
We paid about $11 for this South African Pinotage. It was tasted blind against the Pinot Noir and Barbera D'Alba reviewed below. Of the three it was the worst.
NOSE: TOBACCO, SPICE, BANDAID TASTE, PLASTIC
PALATE: SMOKEY, STRONG ACIDS AND TANNIC STRUCTURE. ALMOST ROUGH
FINISH: SMALL GREEN PEPPER TAIL
Overall, the plastic smell on the nose was described by PB as "bandaid thrown into a fire". I think that's accurate. Raise a glass of something else.
