Tanzer's 90 Pointer Pinotage

Southern Right Pinotage 2005

American critic Stephen Tanzer, writing in Issue 131 of International Wine Cellar, (March/April 2007) said

"Bright, saturated ruby-red. Aromas of crushed blackberry, mulberry and minerals, with a medicinal suggestion of band-aid. Then dense and vibrant, with excellent intensity to the slightly high-toned crushed berry and spice flavors. Plenty of incipient complexity here, but this dry, fruit-driven pinotage needs a couple years in the bottle. Finishes very long and spicy, with a sexy note of woodsmoke. 90 points" ($18 at Vinfolio.com)

Did he say band-aid? Sounds like brett to me, but I suppose as long as it has a sexy finish........
