Vergelegen 2001 Red Red (Stellenbosch)

Shows good ripeness by some measures—smooth tannins, relatively high alcohol—but not by others, as it also exhibits plenty of roasted green pepper aromas. Chocolate and cassis give it some redeeming flavors, and they pick up hints of black pepper on the finish. Might get better with age. Joe Czerwinski
