Natalie's Score: 91/100
A towering, blockbuster South African red wine made from mostly Syrah with Tempranillo, Mourvèdre and Grenache grapes, the traditional Rhone blend. The wine was aged for 18 months in oak barrels. Lots of dark fruit aromas, including blackberry and mulberry, as well as pepper and dark spice on the finish. Pair with prime rib or brontosaurus burgers.
Food pairings: beef stew with root vegetables, venison meatloaf, lamburgers.
Luscious Lamb Wine

|Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
A blend of Syrah and Tempranillo, Grenache and Mouvedre - a so much flavor on the palate - wow! Plump dark fruit, smoke, cigar, smoke, tar, mocha, spice - simply lovely!
|Stephen Andrews reviewed this wine as follows:|
Tasted Blind, Nov 15th, 2017 at wine club. Colour dark ruby red, with thick legs suggests high alcohol. Aromas and flavours of dark fruity plum, blackberry, cedar, and the smell of fresh dirt. Taste dry, dark fruit, mouthwatering medium, chalky tannins, finishes with a dry fruit, sweet tannic feel and lingering black pepper.
Nice wine of blended grape varieties. Paarl region. I would buy this again. Ranked tied number 1 out of 5. You can cellar this also. I would like to pair it with a rich stew of beef, or dishes found in the Rhone Valley of France. We paired it with an assortment of curried meats.
|From the Coastal Region in South Africa, KWV`s The Mentors Canvas (2014) lets you know it has arrived. The robust and full-bodied red wine blend is 64% Shiraz, 18% Mourvedre, 13% Petite Sirah. Lots of ripe, fleshy black fruit, cake spice and earthy florals on the nose and palate with a lingering coconut finish. Pair with roast Wildebeest. - Community Wine Reviews|
