When you’re pairing wine with char-grilled meats and veggies, you need a red that packs a wallop of ripe fruit flavor that also delivers a measure of rich spice and velvety tannins. And, it can’t hurt to seek out a winemaker who’s a self-proclaimed barbecue buff – like the talented Bruce Jack.

Bruce is “a bit of a South African legend,” says The Wine Advocate, and he made this seriously rich Shiraz-Pinotage blend with a hearty grilling menu in mind. And it couldn’t be just any grapes – Bruce hand-selected only the ripest, juiciest fruit from a few of his favorite vineyard sites across the Western Cape. The Shiraz lends smooth, generous red fruit and spice flavors, while the latter brings a meaty richness and bramble berry intensity to the table. A 12-month rest in top-notch American oak barrels adds a smoky, chocolatey character – the perfect recipe for a fantastic barbecue red, if you ask us.

Brisket, steak, baby back ribs, burgers (even hearty roasted meats, if it’s not grilling season) will sing with this smooth red – Bruce really outdid himself here. This is a must-taste if you’re a fan of big, blockbuster reds. Get yours and fire up the grill today!
