Deep ruby to garner in colour with an intense nose.

Positives: Cedar, dried raspberry, dark cherry, mushroom, pencil shavings & leather. Medium to full body, medium tannins, good acidity with a fairly long length.

Negatives: Pungent nose (burnt rubber) will turn people away, but the taste is nice.

Interesting Point: On a blind I would guess Pinotage from the nose and Cabernet Sauvignon from the taste.

Drink now on its own or pair it with mild German pepperettes or ketchup chips.

Tasted: 18 July 12

Score: 8.5+/10, Value: 8.5+/10, Total: 17.5/20.

Out of 5 stars, I rated this wine: 3.5
