2012 Rustenberg Estate Wine

Post by AHB » 11:07 Sat 02 May 2015

Simonsberg. A Bordeaux blend from John Merriman. Cigar ash and cedar on the nose. Delicious palate, fruity and bouyant but with a strong tannic core and a lovely balance. A great palate presence. Very fine aftertaste and a huge finnish of great duration. A terrific wine that is still very youthful. 90/100. Drunk 25-Mar-15.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
