Rustenberg Red Bordeaux Blend Simonsberg-Stellenbosch John X Merriman 2001

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

Flashy style, with lots of black tea, fig, sweet toast, black currant, bittersweet chocolate, plum and blackberry compote aromas and flavors. Long and lush, this is concentrated, but stays balanced and alluring. Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2006.

Ruby-red. Floral aromas of berries, chocolate and sweet oak. Lush, pliant and suave, with a smoky character and a sappy sweetness. Elegantly styled wine thatrsquo;s at once sweetly fruity and dry. Finishes with broad, fine tannins and considerable style.
