Spier CWG Stellenbosch Merlot 2009 90 Points

Showy, ripe dark plums, spicy fruit core, leathery and rich with Christmas fruitcake character, powerful and rich, with very high alcohol of 14.98% abv, everything push to the limit here, structured yet have and impressive freshness, lending an energetic finish, gorgeous!
