A delicious, succulent wine with savory sensibility.” 92pts James Suckling.
Inglenook Rubicon 2018$245.00
The production of Rubicon, Inglenook’s premier red wine, began in 1978 and restored the estate’s legacy of making world-class wines. Rubicon is an elegant blend from the finest vineyard blocks and showcases the highest potential of both the estate and the vintage. Under the guidance of Philippe Bascaules, Inglenook’s Director of Winemaking, Rubicon proudly takes its place alongside much older, revered vintages of Inglenook in collectors’ cellars around the world.
Strikingly rich in color and extract, the 2018 Rubicon is unquestionably a precocious, hedonistic wine. The exotic, well-knit aromas and flavors include ripe cassis, allspice, star anise, vanilla and black licorice. Upon entry, this full-bodied wine envelops the palate with its luxurious concentration and supple, silky tannins, supported by vibrant freshness from the balanced acidity, and perfectly-integrated French oak. Very long and expansive in the finish, the 2018 Rubicon will be memorable for decades to come.
“Subtle and complex red with blackberry, black truffle, sweet tobacco and mahogany.
Highlights of lavender and violets. Full-bodied and very tight with finesse and tension.
Very polished, fine tannins. Long finish. Delicious already, but best after 2022. James Suckling – 97 Points
