Rich, round, and elegantly textured, the 2010 Rubicon exudes deep, dark aromas of kirsch, cherries and fruit jam combined with a hint of almonds. The mid-palate unfolds as a powerful combination of ripe fruit, showing tannins of equal intensity. The finale is long, persistent and expressive. Elegant vintage because of the cool season. To experience the full nature of this wine, one hour of decanting is recommended.
Exceptional depth and length. Meditation wine with exceptional flavours, depth and aftertaste.
