Sexy floral aromas of dark raspberry strawberry and blackberry; rather pinot-like in its perfume. Then rich and silky but gripping with concentrated sappy flavors of black cherry and mocha energized by harmonious acidity. Finishes with broad dusty ripe tannins and lovely lingering sweetness. Offers a captivating blend of pinot noir perfume and texture with pinotage structure. And there's nothing funky here for the pinotage-phobic taster to fear.

This has a hearty slightly rugged core of dark currant plum sauce and fig paste while the edges are polished and racy with alder wood sweet spice and anise providing a nice contrast through the finish. Shows better purity than in some previous vintages. Drink now through 2014. 600 cases imported. -JM

Accents of fruit cake and sweet spice dance in the finish. Balanced and full in the mouth the fine but present tannins and moderate acidity offer the promise of longevity; drink now-2015. - L.B.
