Seeing as it's Women's Day on Tuesday, we thought it'd be nice to get some South African wine recomendations to celebrate with. Our pick is:
Warwick Estate Three Cape Ladies 2008 This blend brings the best of Pinotage to the classic French varieties with a full on the palate with a sweetness on the finish.
Any other recomendations?

As always, much depends on the relationship and the person. I guess "The Bitch" Grenache, or "Royal Bitch", or "Big Ass Chard" might work, or if things are different, a Honey Wine. Or in a wierd way, Donhoff Hermannshöhle but I'm leaving that alone.
For Pet's Day, I'd go with Dogfish Ale.
For Men's Day, I'd go with "Fat Bastard" or "Broke Ass Wine", or depending on certain things, "Fifth Leg".
For Reptile and Amphibian Day, I'd go with "Arrogant Frog".
For Fun Times Day I'd go with "Naked on Roller Skates" wine.
For Urologist's Day I'd go with "Pinot Evil".
For Most People's Day I'd go with "Stu Pidasso" wine.
And then for a Port-style wine to finish, I'd go with "USB Wine".
Whoops! I don't know how many are S. African. But then, I'm kind of curious as to what that has to do with women?

Greg, I thought 'USB Wine', for the porting, should be for IT Geek Day?
I, too, was wondering just what 'women's day' is. Seems there are a number of countries in central and western Asia, and Africa, where it might be more needed....

I tried my first cabernet pinotage from Sebeka's Winery (South Africa) per a Manitowich Waters sommelier's recommendation and what a pleasant surprise; nice taste and great value.
