Red fruits, a little pepper, and earth, distinctly South African with its big flavors in check. Pairs really well with game, fowl, sausages, and yes, pizza.

Winemaker's Notes
"The aromas are perfumed, peppery, spicy, smokey, and exhibit ripe red fruit notes. As always the palate texture of this style of wine is supple, smooth on the entry but with enough grip to end dry and refreshing. In the mouth the texture and fineness of fruit tannin and drinkability of the wine is immediately evident. "

Technical Notes
"Cinsault, Shiraz, Grenache, Mourvedre, Pinotage. "
Wine Advocate
"90 pts ... The 2012 Secateurs Red Blend has just nudged upward in my estimation since last year. Here, it has a very well-defined, quite sumptuous bouquet with vibrant raspberry, dark cherry and mineral notes that have really opened up in the last 12 months. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp tannins. This is very well-balanced with great delineation on the finish. Drinking beautifully now." --10/14
