Meerlust Estate Stellenbosch 2014 Red Wine (South Africa), $13.59-$18.99, 88 points, poured deep purple/reds shifting more red than purple at the broad clear wine ring and leggy bowl.
Aromas were rich, but began with a whisper of funk whisked away by a pleasant cedar potpourri and furtive red fruit.
Medium-bodied with fair-plus acidity and soft round tannins managed earthy red fruit flavors garnished with blueberry and tangy pomegranate.
Finished well with developing and drying tannins, an easy spiciness, truffle, and a balanced 13.5% alcohol.
Varietals were 57% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Cabernet Franc, and 11% Petit Verdot.
