93pointsKanonkop 2013 Cape Winemakers Guild CWG Pinotage (Simonsberg-Stellenbosch)

Cellar Selection

Winemaker: Abrie Beeslaar. Kanonkop is known for their Pinotage, and this special selection is a complete stunner. It's tight and young now, needing time to really develop and mature, but evolve gracefully it certainly will, thanks to the ripe, rich fruit core, robust tannins, medium acidity and overall exceptional balance. Hints of biltong, game, sweet smoke, graphite and licorice add depth to the notes of blackberry, cherry and plum. Don't even think about drinking this now; lay it down until 2018, and enjoy it through 2026. Lauren Buzzeo
