Natalie's Score: 89/100

Wine-coffee drink: I mean this kindly. It's lovely, especially if you love your espresso. So perfect with biscotti. Wait for at least 4 pm.This is my second tasting of the 2012 vintage, and it's consistent with the first one back in January.

Pinotage food pairings: grilled meats, smoked pork.

Martha Kelly AIWS, CS rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Deep purple in colour, with complex flavours of black cherry, strawberry, raspberry, licorice, wood smoke, vanilla, savoury leather and bacon. With medium body and tannic structure, the intense flavours linger on the refreshing, fruit-driven finish.
Drink now, or keep until 2015.
Pair with gourmet burgers and pungent cheeses.
Date tasted: April 2014.
This wine won a Gold Medal at South Africa's 2013 Michelangelo International Wine Awards -- loaded with coffee-espresso goodness. - Community Wine Reviews
