4 ½ Stars Platter’s 2017 South African Wine Guide
Superlative & sensational are common epithets for this flagship cab-dominated Bordeaux blend. Lithe 13 & sleek 12 take up the baton of 10 (*****) after 11 not made. Plush, the dark fruit integrates the oak influence (65% new, 20 months) within complex, dense structure. For the long haul.

Black plums aromas with minty and green olive character. Balanced palate with a medium body, chewy tannins, and ripe plums. Savory finish. Well made. A classic blend that is always excellent. Blend of 67% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc and 7% Petit Verdot. Enjoy now.



Winemaker Notes

The 2013 Rubicon classic expression of this 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 and stony minerality also evident on the nose. Still youthful and intense, promising further maturation potential. The palate is full bodied, structured by beautifully sleek, ripe tannins which restrain the vibrant dark fruit typical of this vintage, giving the wine an opulent texture which is kept focused by the linear acidity. The wine lingers on the palate with creamy fruit mouthfiilling tannins.
