    Winemaker's Notes:

    Very deep, youthful color, and intense almost purple hue. Very classic Rubicon nose with violets, ripe plum, cedar wood and intense spiciness. Still young and still intense, promising further maturation potential. The palate is full-bodied, structured but packed with fresh dark fruit and rounded, linear tannins.

    Critical Acclaim:

    One of the best vintages of Rubicon to date, and for the price it’s a fantastic value that's great for building up your cellar. Right now, the wine is still young and tight, with firm, gripping tannins that need some time to mellow. Fortunately, there’s a great concentrated blackfruit core and enough acidity alongside the tannins to support long-term aging. It's spicy and earthy, with accents of black tea, cedar and crushed violets. Cellar Selection.

    A nice earthy Bordeaux style wine that is big on taste with a fantastic finish. Rating 5 stars because at roughly $30, this wine delivers the goods!
