Rupert ‘Optima’ Earns 90 in Wine Spectator

Optima bottleIn a new Web-exclusive review, Wine Spectator South Africa expert James Molesworth gives the 2010 Anthonij Rupert Optima, a red Bordeaux blend, a score of 90 points. Here’s the tasting note from Molesworth, a senior editor at the magazine and a regular taster since 2000:

90     Anthonij Rupert Optima Western Cape 2010
A solid, grippy version, and a bit of a throwback, with dark charcoal and well-singed cedar notes lining the dark currant and plum sauce flavors. Shows a loamy echo through the finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2018. –J.M.
