Wine of South Africa. 80% Merlot/20% Pinotage. Wine of Western Cape. Looking for a wine that all your finicky friends will love? In this lovely wine, we have herded together the ever-so-popular Merlot with ever-so-flavorful South African pinotage to achieve a wine packed with aromas of cherry, plum and a hint of toasty oak. This versatile wine pairs well with baked brie as an appetizer, grilled chicken on top of a spinach salad with toasted almonds and dried cranberries, or a wood-fired pizza with sun-dried tomatoes. Alc. 13.5% by vol. Imported by Underdog Wine Merchants, Livermore, CA; bottled by Herding Cats Winery, Livermore and Ripon, CA. Product of South Africa.
