Rust en Vrede 2017 Single Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon (Stellenbosch)

Cellar Selection

This wine starts off pretty shy and reserved, with delicate aromas of crunchy black currant and cherry hit by a touch of earthy spice. The palate is medium-plus in weight, with a texture like crushed velvet and more robust black fruit tones complemented by a solid dusting of licorice root and cigar box spice. The finish is long and fueled by charred whole spice, roasted espresso bean and tilled earth. It will come into its own with more time, so enjoy after 2028 and through 2036. Lauren Buzzeo
