Two Solid Scores for Rust En Vrede from the Spectator
James Molesworth of the Wine Spectator continued his December review of South African wines with two reviews of Rust en Vrede:
2015 Rust en Vrede Cabernet Sauvignon, Stellenbosch:
Sleek and focused with a delicious beam of red currant and bitter cherry preserves lined with mouthwatering savory and tobacco hints. An iron spine holds the finish and adds length. Drink now through 2021. 3,750 cases made. 91 Points.
2015 Rust en Vrede Merlot, Stellenbosch:
Solid, with focused, moderately juicy raspberry, red currant and cherry preserve flavors lined with black licorice and subtle toast details. Restrained through the finish, but with solid length. Drink now through 2018. 4,100 cases made. 89 Points.
