Rupert-and-Rothschild-Classic-Meritage-South-Africa-2012

Rupert and Rothschild, Classic Meritage (South Africa) , 2013

A blend of 50% Merlot, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Cabernet Franc and 5% Petit Verdot, the grapes for this Bordeaux-styled blend were hand picked and fermented in stainless steel tanks, then matured for 17 months in 225 liter and 300 liter French oak barrels. Raspberry and dark fruit aromas mingle with earthy, mineral-like notes on the nose. Ripe but graceful on the palate, it has good weight and structure, and spice-like notes linger on the long finish.
