Rust en Vrede 2011 Cape Winemakers Guild CWG Estate Red (Stellenbosch)

Winemaker: Coenie Snyman. This Cabernet Sauvignon-based blend—with 30% Shiraz, 5% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot—opens with aromas of blackberry leaf, cassis, black plum and green peppercorn, with hints of fig and leather in the background. The palate is warm, concentrated and gripping, with firm tannins and dense, dark black-fruit flavors that are framed by charred oak, cigar box and saddle accents. Bold and dense, it finished long and powerful. Drink 2017–2022. Lauren Buzzeo
