rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Pinotage is a South African specialty and certainly does show its variety of flavours and complexity in this modern Pinotage. At first sniff, the deep ruby red (almost opaque) wine is full on plum, blueberry and dark cherry nose, but as the wine opens up, it is full on espresso coffee and cocoa. On the palate it is no less so except with the addition of fresh green herbs, cinnamon and spice box flavours that finish long. Barista is well-structured, full-bodied with grippy, rounding tannins that tame its 14 per cent alcohol. Absolutely excellent with a loin of venison roast. Enjoy!
