2007 Sebeka, Cape Breton, Shiraz (58%)/Pinotage (42%), SA ($7.99 NH Liq Store). Alcohol level: 13.5%. There is a Cheetah on the label and spots on the artificial cork, because they claim it comes from the land where the Cheetah hunts!

The wine gave red and black berries and black cherries on the nose and upfront. Much more jammy fruit along with spice, and minimal oak and tannin made up a complex and balanced middle. The finish carried the fruit and spice with it.

We matched it with roast leg of lamb, roasted vegetables, and potato bread braid for Easter Dinner for fourteen. We had four and half wine drinkers.

We also knocked off a 2006 Wild Pig, Syrah, Vin de Pays D’OC. We had posted a TN on this one previously.

Great time was had by all. .
