Wine of the Day


A red wine grape primarily grown in South Africa. The result of a cross between Pinot Noir and Cinsault, it has medium body and its flavors tend to lean toward the earthy and herbal aspects of Pinot Noir. It can also have some fruit flavors and often an overtone of acetone. Minute quantities are grown in California. Your best bet for tasting one is probably the Russian River Valley Pinotage from J Vineyards Winery.
