    Winemaker's Notes:

    Intense aromas of dark berries with hints of violets and fine roasted oak fill the nose. The sturdy framework and intensely expressive red and black fruits give great power and length to the finish. Two hours of decanting is recommended before drinking; 2009 is a perfect vintage for collectors.

    Blend: 96% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Cabernet Franc, 1% Merlot

    Critical Acclaim:

    A classy effort that is rich and layered, restrained and structured, showing fine tension between the dried currant, cedar, cigar box and anise flavors and the firm, fine-grained tannins. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot. Drink now through 2023.

    A big, imposing wine, the 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Rubicon is going to need some time to shed its tannin and baby fat. There is plenty of weight and gravitas in the glass. Smoke, tar, chocolate, licorice and dark red raspberries are all woven into the virile, authoritative finish. In 2009 the blend is 97% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Cabernet Franc. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2029.

    Even though it's still young, this wine is stunning right now. Notes of dark fruit, leather and dark chocolate. Very smooth silky finish. Thank you FFC for putting this estate back together and making this great example of a Napa red wine.
