2014 Pinotage, Amorosa Vineyard, Lodi

At first, aromas are primarily smoky plum and grilled lamb, but they expand to damp adobe clay drying in the sun, along with clove and caraway. On the palate, soy and tamari dominate, along with ripe grilled plums, blueberries, sage, marionberry pie and strong tea. The significant tannins are firm and granular, and the acid is quite present. Enjoy with a summer weekend of grilled sausages and hot dogs with spicy mustard, or a salami and provolone sub with peppers, oregano, and olive oil. Slow-roasted short ribs with polenta and grilled peppers would also be fabulous.
