Winemaker Notes

Alluring spicy aromatic overlay to dark berry and plum fruit with blackcurrant leaf and hint of cracked black pepper and violet. This wine is all about texture - from its soft, velvety entry to the gentleness of the spice which pervades the cassis, back fruit and cedar flavour. Ample turned earth and tobacco leaf notes too. Beautifully layeared and harmonious with the fruit ideally supported and gramed by sympathetic oak. Nothing is overplayed or dominant. Refined and elegant throughout. Rich, plush and nuanced with an aftertaste that lingers.

Blend: 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Merlot and 20% Cabernet Franc

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 90
Wine Spectator
A focused red, offering a mix of red and black currant fruit, lined with singed alder and rooibos tea notes, all carried through the finish by a subtle iron accent. Hefty but fine-grained overall, with sneaky length. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc.

Anthonij Rupert, South Africa
Anthonij Rupert Winery Image
The historic L’Ormarins wine farm was established not long afterwards in 1694. Until the early 19th century, most of the owners were from the French Hugeonot descent. The Rupert family purchased the estate in 1969, and continued the winemaking tradition.

In 2005, Johann Rupert assumed ownership of the family wine business and created the Anthonij Rupert winery, after his late brother. It was under the guidance of Johann that a complete overhaul of the estate was conducted, which resulted in one of the most state of the art wineries in South Africa.

The Anthonij Rupert Wines philosophy of matching variety to site, to produce the highest quality of fruit, with neither expense nor commitment spared to capture that quality in a bottle, guarantees a current portfolio of wines that are second to none. This philosophy was exemplified in the first Wine Spectator ratings, in which 3 of the 4 wines received 90+ratings.

Originally named Franschhoek meaning the “French Corner” because it was home to the influx of French Huguenots, today the valley contains many historic cellars and is an important tourist location because of its proximity to Cape Town.

This valley falls to the southeast of Paarl and is enclosed on three sides by towering mountains. Streams from the slopes flow down to the valley floor, converging to form the Berg River. The area excels in the production of full-bodied reds.

Image for Bordeaux Blends content section

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot, the best of these are densely hued, fragrant, full of fruit and boast a structure that begs for cellar time. Somm Secret—Blends from Bordeaux are generally earthier compared to those from the New World, which tend to be fruit-dominant.
