Savanha Pinotage/Shiraz (2008)

This South African blend of Pinotage and Shiraz is our choice for this hot summer Friday night. This is a spicy, plummy, bold-flavored wine that is an impeccable choice to accompany our sausage-red potato-cabbage skillet dinner. I particularly appreciate the finish — velvety, spicy and crisp. Here’s to a fun summer weekend!

Zarafa Pinotage (2007)

zarafa-pinotage-2007It’s a Thursday night and I worked all day and then taught a class tonight. So, I need to get some dinner started because it will soon be 9:00 p.m. So, I’ll use my brother-in-law’s words for this post: “It drinks good.”

This Zarafa Pinotage 2007 is delicious but definitely needs to breathe to be at its best. Cheers!
