As a Latin-American living in Taiwan, I am often in contact with South-American and French wines, also with Australian and South Africans but very little with Californian wines.
It is technically impossible go wrong with this wine. Pinot Noir is a piece of art, always a little pricier, but it is worthy.
I had it for the first time, with a person very dear to me and the taste reminds me of the excitement and the beautiful evening. However, these nice memories do not hinder me of giving an objective review.
Now, here is the thing about Pinot Noir Gato Negro, it used to be my favorite. He introduced it to me, and we used to drink it on special occasions. I can assure you it matches perfectly the delicious parmesan mushroom and chicken pasta he used to cook for me. And sometimes with just a little chocolate it would be great. But that was then and my perception of wine has changed now.
About three weeks ago, I was in charge to get the wine for the night. So, I dropped into the store and found a collection of Nederberg. They seamed interesting so I went for these two beauties.
I should have written about them right after drinking them for I have forgotten some of their features, however I have very clear the rating I want to give them.
Let me start with the Pinotage.
