Meerlust Rubicon 2003

Meerlust Rubicon 2003

Intense, opaque ruby core with cerise rim. Powerful primary nose of black currant, cigar box, smoked meat and minerals promising long maturation potential. On the palate the wine shows remarkable approachability with intense dark fruit juiciness coming from a renowned Cabernet Sauvignon vintage. Tannins are still structured but there is plenty of fruit density to reward further aging.

Venison, game, pot roast and noble cheese. Serve ideally at 18°C - 20°C.
