WO Coastal Region.
A blend of Shiraz, Cinsault, Carignan, Mourvèdre and Pinotage.
Dark red in the glass.
Smoky, charred, band aid nose.
Antispectic-band aid notes (which I don't mind), medium weight, black cherry, full in the mouth, smoky, spicy, quite tangy with high acidity, peppery, charred.
A smoky and tangy finish.
The charred notes and high acidity became a bit annoying with time.
I have enjoyed this wine over several vintages and I find it is always quite different: not necessarily better or worse, just different. This was the first vintage in my experience to feature so much of the brett-band aid-antiseptic notes.
Purchased at $12.95 (Canadian).
