Nicholas Red 2013, Franschhoek Valley ($19.99): An easy blend of syrah and mourvedre with bright flavors of black cherries and raspberries, as well as licorice, anise and black pepper.
Eikendal Cuvee Rouge 2013, Stellenbosch ($11.99): An unusual blend of syrah and the Bordeaux varietal, petite verdot, this medium-bodied red has aromas of red and purple fruits, with soft tannins and a round, voluptuous texture. A great introduction to value S. African wines!
Eikendal Charisma 2013 ($21.99): Similar to the Cuvee Rouge with the addition of sangiovese, this take on the classic French and Italian varietals is modern and sleek, with intense red fruits, spices, and violets.
Two Dogs a Peacock and a Horse Sauvignon Blanc ($15.99): The name says it all! This fun white includes a small percentage of barrel-fermented sauvignon blanc, as well as semillon for added richness. Well rounded with both citrus and stone fruit aromas, all backed by a clean finish.
