External Reviews for Rust-En-Vrede Guardian Peak Trinity
Offers lots of juicy blackberry, black currant and briar flavors supported by tar, spice, bramble and dark chocolate notes. Despite its dark profile, it's vibrant and open through the finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Merlot.
Terrific juice, pure and driven, with red and black currant, cassis, bittersweet chocolate, graphite and espresso flavors. Serious depth, with the fruit coursing through the finish despite its youthful tightness. A classy wine. Cellar. Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Merlot. Best from 2004 through 2008.
Dark red. Ripe-verging-on-roasted aromas of spiced plum, red currant, cigar box, and spice cake. Sweet, supple and stuffed with fruit; dense, silky and suave, with impressive intensity. Enticing notes of plum, currant, tobacco and mint. The juicy, long finish really grips the palate.
Shows serious concentration to its streamlined cassis, brier and currant flavors, framed by suave toast and mineral notes. The flavors really glide on the persistent finish. As good as I've had from the region, and back on form after the subpar '97. Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Merlot. Drink now through 2004.
