I agree with John Szabo's and David Lawrason's comments, though I don't see too much appeal in this wine. Like many South African wines, there is also a slight tinniness to the wine, which can turn people off. The nose was compelling, but taking into account the lack of structure, the slightly bitter finish, and low acidity (all negative points in my books) this was not a worthwhile purchase.
