Wonderful exotic aromas of plum, sandalwood and perfume, still with a touch of creamy vanilla. The palate is medium bodied with a forward dark fruit flavour of cassis and mulberry followed by a lithe tannic structure fleshed out with juicy fruit.
The impression is one of litheness and grace rather than over-arching power.
The 2016 Rubicon shows great charm and drinkability, no doubt a result of the high Merlot and Cabernet Franc composition.
