This has solid grip in reserve. Cabernet Sauvig... Wine Spectator. A wine from in South Africa. 2006 Meerlust Rubicon 750ml


Winemaker's Notes:

The Meerlust Rubicon is made from Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc grapes. It has an intense, opaque deep ruby colour, with very slight gradation to the rim. Bright and vivacious in the glass, it is very youthful. The nose is brooding and restrained at this stage, yet beginning to emerge with deep, dark fruit, cassis, plum and black cherry. There is a pronounced minerality on the nose with graphite, cedar smoke and cigar box bouquet. The palate is beautifully structured, fuller bodied than some earlier vintages of Rubicon due to the intensity of the fruit and intricate tannin structure. The wine exhibits rich juiciness and savour already, but the compactness and sinewy taughtness of this young wine suggest a long maturation potential. The perfectly formed, ripe tannins are densely packed and tightly woven but remain lithe and almost powdery, giving the wine a generous opulence even at this early phase of its development.
