Reviews and Ratings

From the Simonsberg-Stellenbosch wine region, Rustenberg John X Merriman 2014 is a robust red blend of 49% Cabernet Sauvignon, 38% Merlot with splashes of Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec for good balance. This is a medium-bodied, spice box with red cherries, berries, pepper and grippy tannins and would benefit from some time in cellar. Cellar for three years when the wine becomes a better sum of its parts. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
