Back In Black: Kanonkop Black Label Pinotage 2006-2019

A vertical of South African Pinotage might sound like torture to some. When the wine is the Cape’s greatest Pinotage, then you understand why the room was packed for the first ever complete tasting of Kanonkop’s Black Label and why its owners and winemaker flew over for the occasion.

Lorne is my favourite restaurant in London right now. I would not claim it is the best. But favourite? That means much more to me.

Vinous Favorites

2021 Ioppa Nebbiolo Rusin

2021 Ioppa Nebbiolo Rusin, 91 points

The 2021 Nebbiolo Rusin opens slowly in the glass, displaying dried apricots, peach skins and sweet smoke. Soothing textures with brilliant acidity enriches its white cherry-berry fruits. Minerality and sour citrus linger as the 2021 tapers off with fine tension. (EG)

Raiding the Cellar at Inspire Napa Valley

I was thrilled to open this eclectic collection of wines from my cellar during this year’s Inspire Napa Valley dinner at Staglin. It’s a rare treat to take a break from the hectic pace of tasting wines for review and actually drink a few things for pleasure.
