A Long Time

Wow, it does not feel like it, but it has been more than 2 months since my last post. This does not mean in the slightest that I have not indulged in my passion and that I have not drunk some very interesting wines lately, I suppose life just got in the way and I have not taken the time to actually write about them.
I found a great Pinot Noir (Haute Cabriere) that is altogether a very fruity and flavourful wine. In fact, I recently attended a Meerlust Wine tasting and tried their Pinot Noir, and (I know it is different, but how else do you compare wines) but, the Meerlust did take a back seat to the Haute Cabriere. While we are on the subject of Meerlust, their flagship wine, the Rubicon is absolutely spectacular and a not so well known fact of the Meerlust Rubicon is that when the actual harvest is not good enough to be bottled as a Rubicon, they bottle it as a Meerlust Red. This has only happened a couple of times in the last 20 years, with 2002 being the last vintage, but the great thing is that you get an almost Rubicon for half the price, so I would recommend the Meerlust Red any day.
