2013 ESTATE Pinotage, Santa Cruz Mtns.

This splendid, incomparable ESTATE Pinotage begins with pleasing aromas of well-charred oak, flint, mulling spices, and hints of deep forest floor mingled with fern and exotic hardwood. Flavors of blackberry jam, blueberry jam, and cranberry sauce follow. From what is probably the highest altitude Pinotage in North America, this is showing nicely now and will only improve with age.
