Wine Spectator Review (June 2015)
Kanonkop Pinotage Black Label 2013 – 93 points
This is dark, with dense layers of fig, raspberry, plum and blueberry fruit, while licorice snap, roasted alder and warm fruitcake notes wait in reserve. Features a long, muscular finish. An impressive wine, and about as serious as this varietal can be. Best from 2016 through 2023. 290 cases made. –JM
A very complex wine with hints of red fruit flavours which reflects some Pinot Noir style elegance and structure. Big, bold tannin structures which are down played by ripe tannins and elegance.
