Rustenberg 2007 Meritage


Happy Wine Wednesday to all and the wine topic of the day is South African wine.  South African wine to me can be really inconsistent with it’s quality, but when you find a good one, they are absolutely mystical, contemplative and in their own rite.  So, last night my friend and I opened a bottle of 2007  Rustenberg by John X Merriman from Stellenbosch; and I was very pleased with what I fell into.  This balanced Meritage blend consisting of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc, and Malbec had awesome deep flavors of blackberry, rustic earth, green pepper, graphite, with a tad of tobacco and vanilla extract. With smooth tannin and great feel throughout, this wine was an absolute joy to drink!  Keep Drinking and Keep Believing.
