Description

Highly expressive with extraordinary quality and character, Inglenook's 2013 Rubicon offers upfront aromas of cherries, black currants, and dark chocolate with substantial presence of oak, toast, and floral notes that continue evolving as the wine opens up. A dense, voluminous palate imbued with very fine tannins showcases flavors of dark crushed berries, cassis, and smoky wood.

As the flavors gradually broaden, nuances of tobacco leaves and spices emerge. There is a precision and elegance to this vintage, which finishes with freshness due to the balanced natural acidity. Expect beautiful development as this wine matures.

97 Points James Suckling - An aromatic and complex red with currant, white-chocolate and rose-petal character. Full-bodied, tight and polished. Fine and long. Beautiful now but will improve in time.

93 Points 
Wine & Spirits - The red cherry–scented fruit of this 2013 has the darker purple notes of the vintage. At the moment of our tasting, the wine was dominated by the influence of its oak aging (in French oak barrels, 75 percent new). The site, a nook tucked into the Mayacamas hills, is prime Rutherford benchland, offering a wine with intensity of flavor, complete in its depths of sweet red fruit and supple, savory tannins. Cellar this to allow the wine to absorb its oak and reach a more nuanced expression.
