Kanonkop 2009 Kadette Red (Stellenbosch)
Also known as a Cape Blend, this mix of 46% Pinotage, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Merlot and 6% Cabernet Franc is an easy-drinking, youthful wine with fresh but rich fruit flavors of red plum and cherry backed by rose hip and hibiscus floral accents. Structured tannins remain through the close, with a subtle smokiness unfolding on the end. Lauren Buzzeo

All tastings reported in the Buying Guide are performed blind. Typically, products are tasted in peer-group flights of from 5-8 samples. Reviewers may know general information about a flight to provide context—vintage, variety or appellation—but never the producer or retail price of any given selection. When possible, products considered flawed or uncustomary are retasted.
