Meerlust Stellenbosch Rubicon 2016
The Rubicon is a classic, iconic Cape wine. Very deep, youthful colour, and intense almost purple hue. Very classic Rubicon nose with violets, ripe plum, cedar wood and intense spiciness. A typical liquorice note also evident on the nose. Still young and intense, promising further maturation potential. The palate is full bodied, structured but packed with fresh dark fruit and rounded, linear tannins. 15 - 20 years ageing potential
Venison, game, pot roast and noble cheese.
