The wine of this past weekend

Kanonkop Kadette 2008 (South Africa)

50% Pinotage ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pinotage ), 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc

First impression of the wine:

Well, the reason why I’m starting to believe that I’m more of an amateur than a professional oenophile (thank you Jeff ;)) is that I really like mixes. The Pinotage grape is one of my favorites, and has been since early wine experiences ;) What I read is that this grape is a signature grape from South Africa.

Its not a collectable item, good, solid taste, perfect for a stay-at-home weekend night.

Price and where I got it from:

Received it as a present (I think it costs around 40 zł = 12-13$)
