Dark fruit aromas of blackberry, plum and raspberry lead the nose of this clean yet ripe Pinotage, with supporting notes of curing spice, toasted oak and mocha that lend decadence. The slightly plush mouthfeel has a texture like crushed velvet, with mildly gripping tannins and flavors of black-fruit skin and licorice root that carry through to the finish.
