"Five robust components - imaginatively blended to create one gutsy wine. The Pepper Pot. Inspired by the unique culinary traditions of our rainbow nation to bring you a heady yet harmonious blend of plucky pepper, piquant spice and radiant red berry flavors. Proving that in wine, as it is in life, the whole is far greater than the sum of parts. Sealed under a screw cap to insure quality." $14.99
And critical acclaim from our favorite reviewer: 89 Points - International Wine Cellar, May/June 2013 "Bright ruby. Slightly reduced aromas of black raspberry, smoke and game are lifted by a peppery quality. Fat, sweet and rich, but with sound acidity giving shape and verve to the concentrated black fruit and gunflint flavors. Finishes with a solid tannic spine. This makes the 2011 seem a bit dry by comparison. An excellent value." -Stephen Tanzer
