Cabernet Frank, Merlot
|Food & Wine Matching||
Rubicon, Meerlust Stellenbosch, Boudeaux style 2016
Wonderful exotic aromas of plum, sandalwood and perfume, still with a touch of creamy vanilla.
The palate is medium bodied with a forward dark fruit flavour of cassis and mulberry followed by a lithe tannic structure fleshed out with juicy fruit.
The impression is one of litheness and grace rather than over-arching power.
The 2016 Rubicon shows great charm and drinkability, no doubt a result of the high Merlot and Cabernet Franc composition.
