Maverick Estate Winery 2013 Rubeus - 89pts

Maverick Estate Winery 2013 Rubeus (Golden Mile Bench) Okanagan Valley - BC

: Direct from winery here
Cost: $25
Alcohol: 14%
Production: 500 cases
Date Tasted: January 13th, 2016

Tasting Notes: An intense, fruit-forward blend of Syrah, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot with a rustic, smoky under-current on the dark berry and pipe tobacco-infused nose and on the spicy-plum and blackberry flavoured palate where a touch of residual sugar is whisked away by the bright, wild berry acidity and fine, mannered tannins to finish dry.

Showing well now with proper decanting and should drink well for another 2-3 years. Drink now-2018.
