2015 Rust En Vrede Merlot Stellenbosch image

(90 Points) "Good medium red-ruby. Dark berries, tobacco leaf, chocolate and cedary oak on the nose, plus a suggestion of woodsmoke. At once supple and firm on the palate, with lovely energy and vinosity to its intense currant, spice and herb flavors. With its complex herbal notes and firm spine of dusty tannins, I might have picked this as Cabernet Sauvignon--or at least a Bordeaux blend. Already shows enticing sweetness but lay this baby down for at least a couple years." Vinous / Antonio Galloni
