    (1999 Vintage) Rating: 5/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Hannes Myburgh's Bordeaux blend, Rubicon, maintains its position as one of the Cape's greatest reds with this superb 1999. Densely young in colour, with ripeness, depth of vineyard character and harmonious confidence for the future, claret lovers should not miss this. Drink 2005-15.
