This Pinotage-based blend, with 34% Cabernet Sauvignon and 12% Merlot, is fruit-loaded right from the start. A smoky overlay sits atop the core of ripe blackberry, plum and boysenberry fruit. The fruity richness dominates the medium-weight palate as well, with secondary notes of earth, sweet smoke, licorice and cocoa that unfold on the finish. Drink now–2020.
