Review: 2018 Kara-Tara Pinot Noir Western Cape

This South African pinot noir, from the Western Cape region, is quite light in color, a character which is immediately at odds with the intense, earthy nose, redolent with barnyard notes — even more so than is typical of South African reds. Black pepper emerges ahead of a lightly balsamic finish, which comes across as somewhat austere while serving to lighten up some of the aggressively earthy elements in the mix. There’s enough charm here for this to be drinkable, but the hefty, animalistic character of the wine keeps the wine at bay.
