2016 Meerlust 'Rubicon' Stellenbosch

$49.95
DC93

Merlot was the star of the vintage and it shines in this blend, bringing tremendous charm and drinkability even in its youth. Wonderful, exotic aromas of plum, sandalwood and perfume find just a hint of creamy vanilla in the bouquet. The palate is medium-bodied and fruit-forward, with dark flavors of cassis and mulberry stealing the show. The tannic structure is lithe and graceful, thanks to the healthy dose of Merlot to temper a season of intense Cabernet.

Cedar wood, spice, a touch of fynbos on nose and palate. Good acidity and layers of flavour that balance the ripe fruit, with a deft touch.
