Rust en Vrede 2017 Cape Winemakers Guild CWG Auction Estate Red (Stellenbosch)

Winemaker: Coenie Snyman. There's an herbal edge right upfront on the nose of this Cabernet Sauvignon-led blend, with 25% Shiraz. Notes of blackcurrant leaf, cassis, black plum skin, mentholated cherry and licorice root lead, while more layers of complex fruit and spice unfold with each sniff and sip. The palate is plush and filling, but not overly so, with spicy, gripping tannins that frame the palate and linger long on the finish. It's well balanced and harmonious, and will mature well through 2030. Lauren Buzzeo
