A decade after the initial pun of Goats do Roam hit our shores we still get the quality. A force of nature in the South African wine business, Charles Back wants everyone to enjoy the word play on his Cote du Rhone appellation, but there is no joking about the quality. Recent repackaging has the varietals listed on the back label. This version is one of the best over the years. Very fresh and lively berry fruit with some nice richness and length. Great pizza and hamburger wine for every occasion.
Color: Crimson Aroma: Cloves, cinnamon, pepper, blackberry, plum Mouthfeel: supple, dynamic Taste: The aroma matches the palate, cranberry Finish: Medium length, tanins last to the tip of the tongue, spice notes
I felt this meritage was well done. It was supple and well balanced. It lacks some richness of some more expensive blends but it is very satisfying.
