Mocha, dark chocolate and toasty warmth from generous aging. Great price for this smooth, full-bodied South African red wine. Pair with Mexican mole for a diplomatic United Nations style dinner. Make lots of resolutions to drink good wine.

Reviews and Ratings

Donna Hargrove rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

I'd be lying if I said I didn't pick this wine up because of the Air Miles special, but it's the absolute truth when I tell you this is going on my go-to list.

A very smooth, full bodied blend of reds, this wine offers a delicious combination of fruit and oak. Soft and smooth on the palate, with a slow lingering finish. Perfect when sipped on its own, with chicken or beef dishes and best of all --- with a chunk of dark chocolate. And the affordability is a great bonus!!

Terry Jeans - Certified S rated this wine as 84/100 with the following review:

Some very nice ripe red fruit on the nose with mocha and smoke. Medium to full bodied that you can tell came from a warm region. Don't be afraid to pair this with some red meat to soften the tannins and robust flavours.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
