2016 Rubicon, Meerlust, Stellenbosch

49% Cabernet, 28% Merlot, 20% CF, 3% PV Quite tightly wound and brooding on the nose. Ripe plums and blackberries. Quite smoky and plush, nice mouthfeel and pretty ripe. Decent texture on the palate, with plenty of vibrancy and a touch of iron oxide on the finish.
