Tasting Notes and Description

Tasting Notes For Rustenberg John X Merriman 2020

Crafted using a blend of premium grape varieties, this wine is a true reflection of the exceptional terroir of the Stellenbosch region.

Upon opening, the John X Merriman reveals intense aromas of cassis, black currant, and dark fruits, which are complemented by subtle notes of cigar tobacco and sour cherry. The palate is full-bodied and powerful, with firm tannins and a rich, fruity character that lingers long after each sip.

For those who prefer a softer, more nuanced wine, the John X Merriman rewards patience. With age, the wine's tannins soften, allowing the savory palate to develop and reveal a range of tertiary flavors and aromas. This transformation results in a wine that is not only delicious but also highly drinkable.

Critic Ratings

James Suckling Review - Rated 92:

Aromas of blackcurrant, back licorice, bark and baking spice. Full-bodied with silky tannins. Black-fruited with savory spice and leafy herbs. Steady intensity and depth here. Persistent. Sustainable.

Wine Spectator Review - Rated 90:
Offers juicy black currant and boysenberry fruit accented by delicate black licorice, fig cake, graphite and dried thyme. Well-meshed, with light, taut tannins and a subtle streak of loamy earth. Fresh and balanced, this is a round and creamy crowd-pleaser. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot and Malbec. Drink now.
