Maybe we need to step back and define what a hybrid is. The Oxford Companion to Wine and The New Sotheby's Wine Encyclopedia both define Pinotage as a hybrid. Ditto Ruby Cabernet.

I have both the first edition and the latest, third, edition of the Oxford Companion to Wine and it cleary defines what a hybrid is and it clearly does not define either Pinotage or Ruby Cabernet as hybrids.

Perhaps you can check again?
