10. Meerlust Rubicon

This may seem to be an odd place to start this list, but I have somehow developed a special relationship with South African Bordeaux blends and it all began with a bottle of Meerlust Rubicon from the mid 1980s.

Rubicon is a talisman of sorts, a wine that straddled the difficulties that the South African wine industry has endured while becoming symbolic of the continuity and connection the modern wine industry has with its past. It’s a wine that is ripe, leafy, fun and bright in the mouth with the savory, earthy nuance that has become South Africa’s calling card.

    Any list that leaves off Ray Krause from Westbrrok Wine Farm is incomplete. His Fait Accompli is one of California's crown jewels. You need to find that and be as stunned as I have been - with each new release.

    Yes, I saw what you did here Gregory - no complaints from me. I'd say well done!

    Some price points would have been nice. I love the Ramey Claret. It is my "go to" wine.
