Meerlust Rubicon 2008

Meerlust Rubicon 750ML 2008        
Sku: 13690

 Wine Spectator 88 points (Dec 15 2013)
Maturing, with dark tea and mulled spice notes emerging from the core of blackberry, tar, currant paste and tobacco. Bay leaf and tobacco details waft through the lightly firm finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Drink now. 1,400 cases made. -JM
 Wine Advocate 92 points (Dec 2012)
The 2008 Rubicon is a blend of 71% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc that is raised in French oak for 20 months (65% new). It has a well-defined bouquet of blackberry, black truffle and tar. The palate is well balanced with supple tannins. There is a core of earthy red berry fruit infused with allspice, cumin and a touch of sage. The finish is very well defined and long. This is a far better Rubicon than the 2007, one worthy of its iconic status. Drink 2013-2020+
