WoTM - Kanonkop Estate 2006 Pinotage

My Wine of the Month for December is Kanonkop Estate 2006 Pinotage.

I've been buying and keeping Kanonkop for decades and while they are great young they are sublime with a decade or more aging. This was one of three remaining from 15 that I bought in April 2009. I will drink the others soon because, although I think they will keep for years more, they are at their peak now.

This was one of three remaining of 15 bought in April 2009.

 Pinotage's youthful exuberance has been replaced by linear sophistication, with underlying Pinotage sweetness. A delightful drink that was soon emptied.
