Stoneboat Vineyards 2008 Duet - 87pts
Availability: Direct from winery here
Date Tasted: November 20th, 2010
Tasting Notes: A successful 60/40 blend of the Pinot Noir and Pinotage grapes that doesn't make it into the winery's signature varietal releases offering cherry-cola, dark fruit, vanilla and earthy characters on the nose and dry palate. Nice balance of fruit to smooth tannins with a smoky texture and a moderate finish. Don't lay down for further development but this quality juice will hold for a while if you want to wait for the right food pairing - Game is recommended here. Drink 2011-2014.
