Platter's Rating: 4.5 stars (2017)
The 2017 Rubicon is a classic vintage of this iconic Cape wine. Very deep and youthful in colour, with an intense almost purple hue, it has the quintessential Rubicon nose with violets, ripe plum, cedar wood, fennel, liquorice and intense spiciness. The palate is full-bodied and structured but packed with fresh dark fruit and rounded tannins. This wine is still young and intense, promising further maturation potential. It is a stand out vintage of Rubicon. With the right cellar conditions, this is a wine that will evolve up to 30 years from vintage.
