The Winery of Good Hope Pinotage 2007

This 2007 Pinotage from The Winery of Good Hope is a deep, dark red - almost purple in color and is reminiscent of blood at times. This full-bodied Pinotage is smooth with a strong alcohol taste, red berry flavors, and a spicy finish. Overall it's a decent Pinotage, which is commendable because Pinotage is a very difficult wine to get right.

 
 
Pepperwood Grove Pinot Noir 2008

The Pepperwood Grove Pinot Noir 2008 is very dark and rich in color, almost garnet red it's so strong. This dry, full-bodied Pinot Noir has nice fruit flavors combined with some smoke. The tannins are fairly strong and hard, which makes this an excellent wine to have with red, fatty meats.

 
 
Estancia Paso Robles Zinfandel, 2006

The moderate aromas of the Estancia Paso Robles are strong with red fruit, berries, and a little spice. This Zinfandel is dry with strong tannins and moderate flavors of dark fruit, berries, a hint of cinnamon, and perhaps a little smoke.

 
 
Bonterra Syrah, 2006

The texture of the Bonterra Syrah is much thinner than you would expect from how thick it looks, but it's also velvety smooth on the tongue which is quite nice. The flavors of this medium- to full-bodied wine are dominated by fruit but there is also some warm spice at the end.

 
 
Volant Mill Blackberry Wine

The Volant Mill wine is medium-sweet and rather tart. It tastes strongly of blackberries, as you would expect. It's probably not the sort of wine that you would want to just sit and drink alone. You could do this, if you want, but blackberry wine is better when paired with desserts - primarily chocolate.
