RustenbergThis wine is a powerful blend of mainly Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Petit Verdot, and Malbec.
This powerful wine would overpower most of the foods, that's the truth! We tried it with mature Spanish cured meats and it was OK, though try it with hearty stews, but add some twist to them- make them very rich, or even add some more spice to them to match with cigar flavours. This wine needs very flavoursome meal and it would be outstanding.
