Perhaps it's the extra time in bottle but this was for myself an excellent example of Pinotage. I expect some weirdness in my pinotage.

Pick up this glass and for me this channels a montreal smoked meat sandwich. There's something meaty about it, some smoke, mocha, definitely something barnyardy. And underneat this there's quite a bit of fruit, cherry/cranberry range fruit.

On the palate there's a lot more vibrancy with the fruit showing through much more. Nice acidity, there is a fair bit of tannin but even with all this it's surprisingly well balanced. Tasted Blind October 2013
