RUST EN VREDE 'Estate' 2012


2015 TOP 100 WINES | Rank #96

The 2012 Estate blend is composed of 56% Cabernet Sauvignon, 36% Shiraz and 8% Merlot. As this slowly opens in the glass, it begins to release aromas of blackberries and plum followed by forest floor, pepper, moist tobacco and spices. This muscular red is well structured and balanced as it expands onto the finish. Although this already shows some appealing characteristics, it will certainly benefit from additional time in bottle before it peaks. (Best 2017-2023) - December, 2015 (JD)
