Anthonij Rupert Optima 2011 Scores 91 Points

In a new review, International Wine Report says the Anthonij Rupert Optima 2011 is a “lovely showing” and awards the wine 91 points. Here’s the full review:

91 Points  Anthonij Rupert Optima 2011

The 2011 ‘Optima’ from Anthonij Rupert is a wonderful effort, made from Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. This is a refined style, with aromas of cherries, blackberries, tobacco leaf, spices and hints of green pepper which all merge together beautifully. On the palate this gorgeous red possesses a medium body with fine, silky tannins and outstanding balance through the finish. A lovely showing that should continue to drink well over the next few years. (Best 2015-2024)

Earlier this year, Optima was selected as a Wine Spectator “Daily Pick” with a rating of 90 points.
