John X Merriman. Rustenberg 2013

External Review by Flaschenpost Weinservice GmbH:

Undurchlässiges Purpur. Herrliche Cassisnase, Tabak, Holunder und Veilchen. Am Gaumen mit schönem Fluss und cremiger Textur, Brombeeren, Pfefferschote und Koriander. Elegante, reife Tannine, perfekt stützend. Im Blaubeerigen Finale Pflaumen, Süssholz und Zedern mit leichtem Biss - erinnert an einen St-Estéphe.

Smooth and relaxing. A bit of citrus. I wish the flavor lasted longer.

Classic vegetal (green pepper) aromas with tobacco leaf chocolate, coffee, just a hint of barnyard and a pleasant heat. Full of warm ripe black fruit and a lot of structure on the palate, with dark chocolate and more herbal vegetation. Very tasty.

deeply garnet verging on purple, full-bodied, lush tannic structure, balanced acidity. intensely minerally, almost metallic, in a super-appealing way. brambly, blackberry leaf, black coffee or dark cocoa bitterness. a little woody on the finish. I'm stealing this.

On first impression, the nose suggests a quality-driven Left Bank Bordeaux, as herbs, new cedar and cassis mingle brilliantly on the aromatics. A more forward fruit expression of cassis and black plum on the palate is reminiscent of a Napa cab blend... Neil Mechanic. A Proprietary Blend wine from Stellenbosch in South Africa. 2007 Rustenberg John X Merriman 750ml

Strong aromas of cassis, cocoa nibs, fresh mint sprigs, black currant leaf and licorice are the first things you experience with this wine. After that, the creamy mouth provides loads of black berry, plum and anise flavors that stay through the finish. A firmly structured and well-balanced Bordeaux-style blend.

Dunkles Rubinrot. Intensives Cassisbouquet, dahinter Zwetschgen, Eukalyptus, Maulbeeren, schwarzer Pfeffer und Zedern. Sehr geradliniger JxM, der durch Finesse und Eleganz besticht. Am Gaumen reife Tannine mit perfekt fliessender Textur. Im Finale eine edle Bitternote und ein Touch Arabica.

Bright ruby-red. Aromas of plum, minerals, graphite, licorice and mint. Big and rich but firmly structured and tight. Bright acidity — and a smaller percentage of merlot than usual — give this Bordeaux blend a youthful toughness. Finishes savory, solidly tannic and long. Lay this down and forget it for a good seven or eight years.

(47% cabernet sauvignon, 39% merlot, 7% petit verdot, 4% cabernet franc and 3% malbec): Bright ruby-red. Aromas of plum, minerals, graphite, licorice and mint. Big and rich but firmly structured and tight. Bright acidity--and a smaller percentage... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Proprietary Blend wine from Stellenbosch in South Africa. 2007 Rustenberg John X Merriman 750ml

Plum and Cigar box aromatics prelude a multi-layered palate with an elegant tannin structure. A Bordeaux blend that typifies Rustenberg terroir with good ageing potential, if cellared correctly
