95 points Tim Atkin, MW: "[14.1%] Back where it belongs among the elite wine brands of South Africa, the 2018 Rubicon is a worthy successor to the stellar 2017 release. Featuring Cabernet Sauvignon with 33% Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, this is an elegant, polished, refined wine from a hot, dry vintage that illustrates the benefit of a cooler site. Floral, balanced and poised. 2025-2032. (2022)"

92 points Wine & Spirits: "[$40 list] This blend, based on cabernet sauvignon with merlot, cabernet franc and petit verdot, has a broad frame of gentle tannins. Its delicate, pretty fruit runs the color gamut from black to blue to red, all scented with a pleasantly humid forest-floor wildness. The shape of the wine seems barely larger than its flavors, which I found to offer direct and easy access to it complex aromas and fruit—like a picture frame. (Feb 2023)"
