Long recognized for producing world-class wines. A classic blend of 74% Cabernet sauvignon, 18% Merlot, 8% Cabernet Franc. Exceptional complexity and character akin with many other exceptional Bordeaux blends. If the blend is not 100% perfect the winemaker refuses to put the Rubicon label on it. A true masterpiece.
