Boschendal Estates 2000 Lanoy (South Africa)
This was fantastic - it had none of what I call the South African stink (smell of Band-Aid or Road Tar which is present in many SA wines). A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot (no mention of percentages on the bottle. Great black fruit, smooth and delicious - proves to me the South African wines need time to settle down and ditch the stink. I was very impressed. No idea how much I paid for this bottle but I am sure it was under $15 - and well worth it.
