Rubicon Napa Valley 2009


Deep Inky in color with a very short reddish rim. Not showing age at all, with a teeth staining color.

Beautiful nose of blackberries, black currants, black figs, cedar, vanilla, licorice, spices, coffee, cola, herbs, peppercorn, pencil lead, dark coffee and dark chocolates.

Full bodied, bold, smooth and elegant, with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate and very fruity with blackberries, plums, cooked cherries, oak, licorice, cedar, leather, earth, vanilla, spices, chocolates, tobacco, mocha and coke.

Long long finish with round tannins and tangy cherries.

This is 12 year Napa Bordeaux blend is drinking deliciously now. Well balanced with lots of complexity.

Showing great structure with a great mouthfeel. Well integrated and elegant.

Good right out of the bottle, and better after 45 minutes of airtime, when tannins and more complexity come in.

This is just fabulous, and will continue to age nicely in the next 10 years, but I don't see any reason to wait. Really delicious and enjoyable now.

Good by itself or with food. I paired it a Charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

A blend of 96% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Cabernet Franc and 1% Merlot. Aged for 17 months in French oak barrels.

14.8% alcohol by volume.

97 points.

I think this is the biggest score I’ve seen you post. It’s probably a 10 for most people.

Rubicon Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2017

Very Bordeaux style in the nose, with maybe more mulberry vs black currant. But he tuoical cedar wood, pencil shavings, a touch of earthy-gravelly character. It’s all there.
On the palate, this is medium bodied, a touch fuller & fruitier vs the standard Bordeaux, but delicious nevertheless. Lively character, depth and good tension.

Rubicon Napa Valley Red Rhone Blend 1997

Wasn’t sure what to expect from this bottle. Over delivered with scents of cherry, anise, leather, and dried herbs. Flavors of raspberry pie and baking spice, leather and tobacco. Lovely, mellow tannins and a long finish — 2 years ago
