THE DRIFT MOUNTAIN FARM Pinot Noir Overberg The Heartbreak Grape Cape Winemakers Guild 2013 Score: 90
Perfumy, with lots of singed sandalwood and warmed cinnamon stick notes leading the way for supple flavors of cherry
preserves and damson plum compote. The silky finish lets the cinnamon accent linger. Alluring. Drink now. 77 cases made. —
Bid now, enjoy this evening!
