    Winemaker's Notes:

    Number 45 on the Wine.com 100 of 2007!

    A classic blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc, this wine is the culmination of the Myburgh family's dream of making a truly remarkable Bordeaux-style wine. Meerlust Rubicon is well-balanced with a cigar box and spicy tobacco bouquet. Smooth, firm tannins provide structure and depth with excellent aging potential.

    Ultra dark, intense, opaque & concentrated. Very youthful with cerise rim. Exuberant cassis fruit on the nose, black cherry, blackcurrant & nettle-bush followed by cigar box. Full bodied with a concentrated fruit core wrapped by lush, sleek tannins and an earthy minerality.

    My wife actually visited the Meerlust winery in South Africa in July. we tried and loved the 2001 rubicon. Our friends here loved this wine thus causing the purdhase of two more cases.
