Sebeka Cape Blend 2006

cheetahSebeka is a line of South African wines produced for Gallo by the Swartland Winery in the Western Cape province.

Sporting yet another critter label, Sebeka wines are adorned with the image of a Cheetah in full flight. There are two whites and three reds, but the pick of the litter is the Sebeka Cape Blend Shiraz-Pinotage 2006. It's easy to drink, with plenty of body and jammy fruit from the Shiraz and a distinctly smoky component on the nose and palate from the Pinotage. Attractively priced at $7, this is a good wine to take to a barbeque, particularly if there's going to be lamb on the grill.
