Intensives, dichtes und dunkles Rubinrot, Im Bukett röstig, schwarze Schokolade, enorme Aromavielfalt entfaltet sich, edel, finessereich mit sehr viel Aromadruck, im Gaumen noch jung, zeigt ein sehr reiche Konzentration mit perfekter Eleganz, die massigen Tannine wirken moderat und perfekt abgerundet, ein wahrhaft grosser Wein! Wiird sich sehr schön entwickeln.

74% cabernet sauvignon, 15% merlot and 11% cabernet franc. Bright, saturated ruby-red. Brooding aromas of cassis, dark chocolate, licorice, violet and pepper. Dense, broad and sweet, with a youthful reserve to the intense flavors of dark berries, ... Stephen Tanzers IWC. A wine from in South Africa. 2007 Meerlust Rubicon 750ml

It has a well-defined, quite opulent mint tinged bouquet with touches of macerated red cherries, red currant and sloes. The palate is medium-bodied with a toasty entry and good depth.

Winemaker's Notes:

The wine has a very deep, youthful color, and intense, almost purple hue. There is a very classic Rubicon nose with violets, ripe plum, cedar wood and intense spiciness. Still young and still intense, it promises further maturation potential. The palate is full bodied, structured but packed with fresh dark fruit and rounded, linear tannins. This wine pairs well with venison, game, pot roast and noble cheese. 74% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot and 11% Cabernet Franc
