Winemaker's Notes

Rubicon Estate 2004 CASK Cabernet is a classic, grand style American Cabernet. It is loaded with ripe red cherry and rum raisin scents, which are telltale hallmarks of Rutherford Cabernet in a great year. Immediately accessible for its forward charm, the dense and supple tannins are inviting to experience but the rewards will come with three to six years of bottle age.

Critical Acclaim

"Based on the old 100% Cabs from Inglewood that aged forever, Rubicon’s interpretation has the same hard, tough tannins in youth. It’s not a wine you want to drink anytime soon. Bursting with cherry, blackberry, plum and vanilla flavors, it has the elegant balance needed for ageability. Best after 2010, and should hold and improve for many years after."
93 Points

"Ripe, with spicy plum and blackberry fruit that's fresh and vibrant, yet elegant and stylish, finishing with a zesty Cabernet aftertaste. Drink now through 2012."

While the 2002 vintage most certainly cleared my cellar at a date long before planned, a 2003 left us wanting more. By some odd stroke of luck I found a case of 3 2003's and 9 2004's at a local liquer store for $9.99 each. As it turns out, apparently Coppola does not put a barcode on these bottles and the store had it marked as if it were a Rosso... The true price was supposed to be $79.99 each not $9.99 each. When reporting this to the store they simply said congratulations (and they don't have any left)... Short story is that wine.com still has a better price than what these were supposed to cost, and we decided to just go ahead and drink all of them now. I can certainly see why the 2003 received a 95 rating and the 2004 has us happy each night at the dinner table. Wine.com's price is quite reasonable for this world class cab. It's giant and luxurious.

A decade later,...

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
