I am a fan of the South African Pinotage grape. Pinotage always seems to be one of those varietals that you either like or dislike, with little inbetween.
I recently tasted the 2003 Hill & Dale, Pinotage, Stellenbosch ($9)and thought it was a superb value. It was smooth, smoky, and earthy. It was an intriguing and complex wine, especially for under $10. It is also much mellower than most Pinotages I have had and thus might even interest those who generally do not care for Pinotage.
