Kanonkop Stellenbosch Pinotage 2008 Wine Review (NW)

Tasting notes:

Wild, gamy nose with boysenberry and plum

Full bodied and firm on the palate

Interesting layers on the finish showing roasted meat, coffee, wild red berries, and pepper


Good Pinotage from South Africa always has an exotic edge to it with wild fruit, coffee, and gamy notes. This wine has all that along with good depth, too. It's not an evening sipper, rather a wine to pair at the table with barbecue or smoked meat. At $30, it's the most expensive Pinotage I've ever had. Raise a glass!
