Flagstone Red Blend Dragon Tree 2005
Flagstone is a small but frequently awarded winery with a selection of wines built around winemaker Bruce Jack’s philosophy of hand-crafted wine-making.
Richly smooth, full, plentiful tannins. Complex flavours (maybe that mix of six has something after all). Warming alcohol on the finish. Very approachable. Creamy edge. While only accounting for 21% the Pinotage peaks through with a distinctive twist on the finish that you don't get with Cabernet alone. It is almost 'rusty' but seems to work here, rather than being a criticism. http://www.spittoon.biz/two_wines_from_south_africa.html
