Rupert & Rothschild Red Bordeaux Blend Classique 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Ripe, rich fruit impressions interspersed with nuances of cassis, blueberry and forest floor notes which follow through on the palate. Well rounded with abundant youthful tannins.

Rupert & Rothschild:
At the foot of the spectacular Simonsberg mountain in the Franschhock Valley lies the historic French Huguenot farm Fredericksburg, established in 1690 and now home to Rupert and Rothschild Vignerons. It was in this valley over 300 years ago that the early French Huguenots first discovered a terroir similar to that of certain winegrowing regions in France. Hence their decision to settle and cultivate vineyards here.

According to the back label, the blend of this wine is 51% merlot to 49% cabernet sauvignon. Usually when a wine has at least 50% merlot I feel like it overtakes the other grapes in the blend, but that isn't the case here at all. The nose is pretty robust with a great deal of berry fruit and hints of earth with just a touch of a spicy character. Medium body with silky tannins and a nice touch of acidity. The balance between components of the wine is really nice. Great flavors in this wine. I definitely recommend giving this wine a try.
