Val du Charron 2011 Erasmus Red (Western Cape)
There's a subtle high-toned red-fruit aroma to this blend of 31% Merlot, 31% Pinotage, 29% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Malbec and 2% Shiraz. Flavors of red cherry, strawberry and licorice flesh out the medium-weight palate, framed by soft tannins that fade quickly on the finish. 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.
