Due to uneven ripening, we had to be very selective during harvest, discarding and bunches which were not perfectly ripe and having shorter macerations on the Cabernet. The Merlot, however, was the standout variety in the season and was beautifully and consistently ripe, although harvested a bit later. The 2014 Rubicon is 67% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc and 7% Petit Verdot, this variety now really starting to assert itself as an important component of Rubicon. 15 – 20 years, provided wine is stored in ideal cellar conditions. 2017 SAWi Awards –Platinum,Decanter World Wine Awards 2013 – Commended Medal scored 92 by Neil Martin from The Wine Advocate December 2012
