The Inglenook Rubicon 2013 emerges from the back part of the property, which lies on the foothills of the Mayacamas Mountains. Here the wines are dense, powerful, and structured. That is exactly what comes through in 2013. Layers of dark fruit built into a crescendo of aromas, flavors, and textures laced with mocha, espresso, gravel, and dark spice overtones.
The new oak that was so prominent at the outset has begun to integrate and in so doing is allowing the fruit to come through to a greater degree than in the past. This is a tremendous showing for the 2013 Rubicon.
Highly expressive with extraordinary quality and character, our 2013 Rubicon offers upfront aromas of cherries, black currants, and dark chocolate with a 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 are precision and elegance to this vintage, which finishes with freshness due to the balanced natural acidity. Expect beautiful development as this wine matures.
This Inglenook Rubicon 2013 of the famous proprietary wine is made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, a testament to how much the winemakers loved the variety on their own this year. Root beer, cola, and red plum notes make up its core of flavor, the texture velvety-soft. With its firm structure and clove accents, it will benefit from further time in the bottle.
