It really does remind me of a Medoc wine, despite the presence of Syrah, which does not dominate. Very flavorful, I liked it a lot, but I cannot quite give it a ninety. It was not quite smooth or complex enough. Still, it was a decent value.
The 2009 Rustenberg Rm Nicholson, composed of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 42% Shiraz, balance of Malbec, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot and aged for 16 months in French and American oak. It is a medium bodied, integrated wine, with intense aromas of black currant, cherry, oak and vanilla. It is a bit acidic and on the tannic side (decant for 30-60 min), though the finish is long. Ackward with food, it should be drunk within the next 5 years. My impression: NICE, 89 pts. Tasted Nov/12.
