Rust en Vrede Cab Rated 91 Points in Wine Spectator


South Africa expert James Molesworth reviews the Rust en Vrede Cabernet in the January 31-February 28 issue of Wine Spectator, giving it a score of 91 points:

91       Rust en Vrede Cabernet Sauvignon Stellenbosch 2012
A dark, muscular, grippy style, with roasted tobacco and cedar notes framing the core of steeped currant and warmed fig fruit. Loam and baker’s chocolate notes stride through the finish. Shows more guts than refinement right now, but this should cellar well. Best from 2016 through 2021. 3,400 cases made. –JM
