  • Goedhuis, September 2022, Score: 98-99

    Deep garnet colour. Striking black morello cherry, full and generous aromas of mocha and oriental spice with a touch of redwood pine kernel. In tbe palate it has a deep intensity of dark fruit. Black olive, there is an extraordinary degree of substance in this high class wine, it has a Pauillac like quality of restrained power. Fabulously layered . Long, vibrant and energetic with a touch of sweet coffee bean and fresh cocoa on the finish. Quite outstanding Drink 2025- 2050.

  • Wine Advocate, October 2021, Score: 96+

    The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Rubicon is a blend of 81% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot. Deep garnet-purple in color, the nose pops with vivacious notes of warm cassis, blackberry pie and redcurrant jelly, plus hints of crushed rocks, bay leaves and pencil lead. Medium to full-bodied, it delivers a solid, firm and grainy texture with a lively backbone cutting through dense earth-laced layers, finishing long and minerally. Impressive!

  • James Suckling, February 2022, Score: 97

    Aromas of ripe berries, sweet vanilla, licorice, dark chocolate and bread crust. Notes of dried herbs and pinewood, too. So well grounded. Smooth, with a lingering, silky mouth-feel. Full body and ripe, chewy tannins. Toned and muscular with hints of crushed rocks. Firm, linear finish. Try after 2025

  • Jane Anson, June 2022, Score: 100

    The depth and power of this wine is striking from the first moment, and even now after two years in bottle it is fresh out of the gate, barely revving up its engines. Black cherry, fennel, slate, tocacco, cigar box, give it a few more years in bottle to fully smooth out, then enjoy this luscious example of Napa Cab. Winemaker Todd DeVincezi, consultant winemaker Philippe Bascaules, 43% new oak.

Inglenook, founded in 1871 by William Watson, George Yount of Yountville’s son-in-law, was always one of the most respected names from Napa’s great Rutherford vineyards. However, despite this extraordinary history and reputation, it is possibly the last 40 years that have been most exciting, firstly for the vineyard and, more recently, for the brand name Inglenook Rubicon. This part of the story starts in 1975 when Francis Ford Coppola bought the house and a section of the vineyards, with some of the proceeds from The Godfather. Over the following 20 years, he bought the remaining vineyards and estate. He has since made major long-term investment in both the vineyards and winery, and Inglenook once again sits at the top of the Californian hierarchy. Initially he sold his wines under the Niebaum-Coppola name, but in 2011 he was finally able to purchase back the name Inglenook, and so it was that a Californian icon was reborn under the name Inglenook Rubicon.Read less

Region

Napa Valley

This small town north of San Francisco has grown up to be one of California’s most famous wine regions. It is home to opulent Cabernets and sweetly-spiced Zinfandels, grown across many sub-regions including Stags Leap, Rutherford, Oakville and others. Cooling ocean fogs roll in from the Pacific at night and burn off in the summer sunshine, keeping the region cooler than you would expect for its latitude, and help produce some of the best Californian wines. Napa wines have the concentration and structure to age magnificently.
