KANONKOP Pinotage Simonsberg-Stellenbosch 2016
92 points, $45
Sleek and refined, especially for the grape, with a sanguine thread weaving around a core of gently steeped black currant, cherry and plum fruit flavors. Alluring black tea details and a dash of singed alder check in on the finish. Needs a little cellaring. Best from 2020 through 2025. 6,666 cases made. —James Molesworth
