Natalie's Score: 89/100

Big oak and mocha-chocolate notes on the nose continue on the palate from generous oak aging. Full-bodied and hulky with a satisfying mouth-filling weight. This is the ideal red for coffee lovers given the espresso finish. Distinctive squared. Pinotage food pairings: wild mushroom risotto, venison stroganoff, black bean soup, blackened or boldly seasoned steaks. Spectacular Spicy Wine

This wine is certified for Integrity & Sustainability by South Africa’s Wine and Spirit Board. Now in its 12th vintage and dubbed “the original coffee/chocolate Pinotage” by its creators, this wine is one of the overtly oak-barrel-influenced wines coming out of South Africa these days. Brimming with rich coffee, bacon and chocolate overlaying generous berry fruit. Source: Vintages Wine Panel, Jan. 2013
