Desperately Seeking Crappy South African Wine

pinotageAnne Spectator has never met a South African wine she didn’t love.

Is there a crappy South African wine out there? Seriously. This is not a rhetorical question. If you know of one, you can tell me, but I pretty much already don’t believe you.

Which brings me to today’s Tuesday night indulgence. Barista 2012 Pinotage. And by “indulgence,” I’m talking in terms of taste, not price. $11.99. Whatwhat?

What a little darling. Rich coffee, red fruit, and no small amount of band-aid. The description says I’m supposed to be tasting mulberry, but I don’t know what a mulberry tastes like. Does anyone? Seriously. This is not a rhetorical question.

It also says I’m supposed to be tasting maraschino cherry, which I hate. So I don’t get that either. But you know what – who cares? Try it and decide for yourself. And do it on a Tuesday night. Because a Tuesday night without a pinotage is about as exciting as Delaware.

Sorry, Delawarians. Is that what you are called? Is it an exciting place? I don’t know. Seriously. THESE ARE NOT RHETORICAL QUESTIONS.
