Indaba Mosaic 2012
Editorial Reviews for Indaba Mosaic
Blue fruits and spicy herbs greet the nose along with a little green anise seed and some sweet gum notes. Fairly fruity in the mouth with enough acidity to give this a touch of an edgy feel, there are no obvious tannins allowing the slightly inky, blue fruits to open nicely on the palate. This is broad with lovely slightly candied blackberry fruits emerging on the midpalate along with slightly dusty tannins and a violet note. Turning a bit tart and everso slightly astringent on the backend, there’s a nice blend of rusticity and complexity here, that really holds one’s interest and the finish is both fairly long and reveals attractive complexity to the fruit here. This is succulent and fresh, if just a bit hot on the finish. 86pts

Brambly blackberry, dark chocolate, licorice and a peppery accent on the nose. Densely packed and juicy, with bright acidity framing the cassis and spice flavors. Just a bit syrupy owing to its four grams of residual sugar but the soft finish nonetheless manages good grip. Ready to drink — and an excellent value.
