Boekenhoutskloof 2004 The Wolftrap (South Africa)

16 Dec 2017

Wolftrap 2004(September 24, 2016) ... Is old South Africa better than new South Africa, it's time to find out ... The Wolftrap is a staple at the LCBO these days, back when this came out it was a Vintages wine that appeared once a year (maybe twice if you were lucky).  I find it a hit and miss wine, quality-wise, but this '04 was good value and quality ... Today it's smoky, leathery, earthy, and a touch tarry on the nose - very similar to new South African reds; the palate is a little more enticing with dried fig, cassis, and coffee while still doling out everything from the nose on to the palate.
