Inglenook Rubicon 2004
Rubicon is characterized by aromas of black sour cherries and violets. These flavorsare confirmed on the palate with the addition of black currant, wild berries and sweetvanilla from aging in 100% new French oak barrels. There is an immediate sense ofconcentration on the mid palate with a luxurious and dense texture. While this wineis approachable now, it will develop further complexity with cellaring, easily fifteen totwenty-five years or more. This is one for the cellar.
