Robertson Winery Pinotage 2016



With my first installment of Urban Wine Life as a podcast.  I try a $6.99 Robertson Winery Pinotage.  This is a South African wine that normally shows up pretty well (reference the Chenin Blancs and Chardonnays) During this episode, I'm feeling out this method of review without doing it as a video podcast. Here are the notes.

Tasting notes
A deep purple tint on the rim with delicious flavors of ripe strawberry, banana, juicy plums and rich, red cherry. Produced in an early drinking style with well-integrated wood and a soft, smooth finish. Enjoy now with roast beef, guinea fowl, roast chicken, stews, lamb, pizza and pasta.
