Rustenberg John X Merriman MAGNUM 2015
The John X Merriman is a powerful wine that rewards aging. In its youth the wine is worth decanting and expresses cassis, blackcurrant and dark fruits complemented with cigar tobacco and sour cherry notes. As the wine ages and its fine grained tannins soften, a softer more savoury palate develops revealing wonderful drinkability and tertiary complexity. In 2015, a blend of 52% Merlot, 41% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Malbec, 1% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petit Verdot.
