Man Vintners Pinotage 2011
Pinotage is a red grape cross which is all but unique to South Africa, having originated there in 1925. The early versions produced overly hearty, smoky country wines without much distinction. Lately some refinements have crept in, and this is not a badly made wine, with dark berry flavors and a hint of cinnamon at the finish. However, at $9.99, this is badly overpriced, being available elsewhere for as much as three dollars less.
