This wine has a nice balance of earth, and fruit. You smell berry, a little smoke, and toasted nut. The fruit, and pepper is right up front on your palet, then it turns to cured meat, and spice. Very nice blend, and the price is a steal for this wine.
Nice smooth red to keep around.

Medium dark red. Slightly baked red fruit flavors of cherry and raspberry. Supple, sweet and very ripe, with good texture and a lightly peppery quality. Nicely chewy and fresh wine, finishing with light, slightly dry tannins. Very good value.
The 2000 Goats Do Roam Red, a blend of 33% Pinot Noir, 22% Shiraz, 13% Cinsault, 13% Grenache, 10% Carignan, 5% Gamay Noir, and 4% Mourvedre, exhibits a beautiful cherry, raspberry, and blackberry nose. Light to medium-bodied, supple, and easy to drink, this is a juicy, spicy cherry and pepper-flavored wine. It is expressive, thirst-quenching, and delicious. Drink it over the next two years. This wine is a superb value.
Bright red-ruby. High-toned aromas of currant, leather and mint. Soft and pliant, with slightly diffuse but creamy flavors of red berries, medicinal cherry and fresh herbs. Finishes with soft tannins. The Southern Hemisphere's answer to La Vieille Ferme?
The fantastic color of this wine is a deep, vibrant purple, while the nose displays ripe juicy red fruits and enticing spice. The palate is chock full of juicy, jammy red fruits. The perfect match for your next barbecue - serve it with barbecued hamburgers and herb grilled steak.
Dark red. Expressive aromas of pepper and smoked meat. Supple, sweet and broad but not heavy, with dark berry and pepper flavors showing decent lift. Finishes with a light dusting of tannins.
The grapes were harvested from vineyards in Paarl, Pedeberg and Malmesbury. The grapes are mostly sourced from dry-farmed old bush vines. These are mostly vineyards with small cropping levels. The resulting wine has considerable concentration.
South Africa's Western Cape is known for producing fresh, value-focused wine year after year. This is no exception. Soft and light, the wine offers jammy cherries, high-toned red fruits and delicate vanilla tones.
