  • 2008 Kanonkop Pinotage – South Africa, Coastal Region, Stellenbosch, Simonsberg-Stellenbosch (11/24/2019)
    WIML92

    Tasted non blind. Opened and served immediately. Followed over about 90 minutes.

    Dark garnet color in the glass, clear looking throughout. Nose of asphalt, black berries, plums and boysenberries. Flavors of boysenberries, plums and black cherries. Bright acidity, medium tannin, full bodied. Drink or hold depending on provenance. The provenance on our bottles is impeccable as we bought them at the winery during World Cup and brought them home on our return flight and they’ve been sleeping quietly in our controlled cellar since. This bottle still has life ahead of it. We have one left. Brings back great memories. (92 points)

    Dark garnet to purple color in the glass, clear looking throughout. Lovely nose of boysenberries, violets, plums and a hint of cassis. Full flavors of boysenberries, loganberries and plums. Medium acidity, medium tannin, full bodied. Drink now. I cannot imagine this wine getting any better than it is at this moment. NOTE: the provenance on this bottle was impeccable.
