John X Merriman Stellenbosch Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2017

A sweet, fruity wine. The taste is really full and there"s just a hint of sour. One of the best wines ive tasted yet. Would give more points, but its not vegan. — 19 days ago

The nose reveals; peach, white peach, apricot, lemon, pineapple, some grapefruit, almost candied lime, marmalade notes, soft chalkiness & minerality with yellow flowers.

The body is thick, waxy and full. There a bit of a sour presence to the fruit. Peach, white peach, apricot, lemon, pineapple, some grapefruit, almost candied lime, marmalade notes, soft chalkiness & minerality with yellow flowers. Round acidity and thick well polished, rich finish.

Dark chocolate, mocha, caramel, touch of V/A, herbaceous notes, tobacco, sweet tarry notes, soft wood notes, dark rich soil, expresso notes, limestone minerals and dark withering and fresh florals.

The body is full and thick. The tannins powdery, meaty and sticky. The structure, length, tension and balance are set for success. The fruits are ripe with candied notes. Blackberries, purple fruits, dark cherries, blue fruits, black raspberries & sour black plum. Dark chocolate, mocha, caramel, touch V/A on the palate as well, herbaceous notes, tobacco, sweet tarry notes, dark spice with just a touch of heat, soft wood notes, dark rich soil, expresso notes, limestone minerals and dark withering and fresh florals. The acidity runs like a fresh water river. The long finish is thick, round, ripe, well balanced and persist in the mouth for minutes.
