Libby's Pride 2006

Libby's Pride is a new label from Elizabeth Peterson (pictured right). Her maiden vintage, the 2006 Robertson Pinotage, is made by Wickus Erasmus of Le Grande Chasseur Estate. The wine underwent malolactic fermentation, and a years maturation, in French oak barrels.

I found it very very soft and jammy. Attractive to the new wine drinker market that it is aimed at, but I would prefer a little more structure; it's rather flabby and one dimensional and I didn't pick up any oak effect.
