2007 Meerlust Estate Rubicon Stellenbosch
Producer: Meerlust Estate
Style: Red Wine
Grape Type: Bordeaux Blend
Origin: South Africa
Region: South Africa
92 Points | International Wine Cellar , May 2011
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, tobacco and spices. Already shows a plush texture but there's terrific sappy energy at the core. Finishes very long and aromatic, with fine, building tannins and the structure for long aging.
