    Winemaker's Notes:

    Rubric is Blackstone's first signature red blend. The name Rubric is inspired by the ancient linguistic roots of the word red, paying tribute to the strong tradition of red winemaking at Blackstone. Rubric provides our winemaker, Gary Sitton, the freedom to create the finest red wine he can from Sonoma County, one that best expresses each unique vintage. Gary carefully selects the regions, vineyards, blocks, and grapes he likes best each year, and the result is Rubric.

    The Blackstone 2006 Sonoma Reserve Rubric exhibits a dark, inky black hue, displaying aromas of black cherry, blackberry jam, cassis, cigar box, and coffee, with a hint of toasted spice. This stunning blend carries layered flavors of ripe, jammy black fruit with undercurrents of caramel, vanilla, coffee, and varietal herbaceousness. This is a concentrated wine with a rich mouthfeel and silky texture. Fine, supple tannins provide a lingering finish perfect for pairing with braised short ribs, herb-coated lamb, or dark chocolate souffle.

    Blend: 59% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Merlot, 8% Petit Verdot, 8% Syrah, 7% Cabernet Franc, 6% Petite Sirah and 2% Tannat
