Tiger Horse Old Vine Cinsault 2019

Western Cape, South AfricaCinsault is mostly unheralded wherever it's planted, or at the very most, it ends up in a blend of shiraz and grenache or the like, but this Boutinot label from the Cape is a solo version and a pretty good one. The vines are 40-plus years old, and they yield an intense dark cherry that slides down easily. Add a bit of cola and brown spices, and you have the perfect red for lamb chops or chicken brochette. Almost pinot noir like, it offers fine value.Tasted: 30 October 2020Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 14.99 BCLS Producer: BoutinotDistributors: Vintage West Wine Marketing
