Winemaker Notes

94% Cabernet Sauvignon,4% Petit Verdot, 2% Cabernet Franc.

Only one of every four acres of Cabernet we grow on the Estate is deemed worthy ofbecoming part of Rubicon. Even in extraordinary vintages such as this one, where allof the fruit is of a very high quality, certain lots will stand apart and express a specialcomplexity. And, though nearly all vintages of Rubicon contain Merlot, Petit Verdot andCabernet Franc, our Cabernet Sauvignon was so expressive this year and had such a lushtexture on its own, we did not feel the need to add Merlot to the blend. The addition ofthe highly colored, high energy Petit Verdot added immediate mouthfeel and seamlesstexture to the Cabernets. Furthermore, because of the intense concentration of flavors inour fruit, only small quantities of Cabernet Franc were included. The wine was then agedin new French oak barrels for twenty months, to soften the tannins.

Opulent and richly textured, our 2007 Rubicon has a velvety mouthfeel with wellintegratedtannins. Dark, decadent flavors of black sour cherries, crushed wild berries,and black currants create a foundation upon which rest alluring notes of vanilla, spices,violets, and tobacco leaves. Though this vintage seems ready to enjoy now, the power andpurity of our 2007 Rubicon will allow it to age for 20+ years.

Critical Acclaim

WE 93
Wine Enthusiast
New oak stands out in toast and caramelized wood sweetness on this Cab, overshining to some degree the underlying blackberry, cherry and black currant fruit. It's quite a fashionable, delectable young wine, and will probably be consumed too early by many people who buy it, but it's really a cellar candidate. Made with a few drops of Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, it should develop for 12–15 years.
WS 92
Wine Spectator
Complex aromas of fresh leather, currant, spice, tobacco, black licorice and plum lead to a ripe, rich, full-bodied palate, elegantly proportioned and stylish, firming on the finish where this picks up a touch of mineral and crushed rock. Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2020.
W&S 90
Wine & Spirits
Dominated by tannins at first, this yields little beyond coffee-scented richness unitl it reveals bold, juicy fruit after a day of air. It's a sweet, rich vintage of Rubicon, needing several years to mellow and develop complexity. For seared steak.

Inglenook, California
Inglenook Chateau in Spring Winery Image
In 1879, Finnish explorer and adventurer Gustave Niebaum searched the Napa Valley with the goal of establishing a wine estate to rival the finest chateau of France. For decades his wines won acclaim and remain some of the most admired in American wine history's classic period. By the mid-1960's, his property was divided, and estate-wine production ceased.

A decade later, Francis Ford Coppola purchased 1,500 acres of this historic property and revived Captain Niebaum's fine winemaking tradition. In 1995, Niebaum-Coppola acquired the remainder of the property and restored the Inglenook Estate to its original dimensions.

Undoubtedly proving its merit over and over, Napa Valley is a now a leading force in the world of prestigious red wine regions. Though Cabernet Sauvignon dominates Napa Valley, other red varieties certainly thrive here. Important but often overlooked include Merlot and other Bordeaux varieties well-regarded on their own as well as for their blending capacities. Very old vine Zinfandel represents an important historical stronghold for the region and Pinot noir is produced in the cooler southern parts, close to the San Pablo Bay.

Perfectly situated running north to south, the valley acts as a corridor, pulling cool, moist air up from the San Pablo Bay in the evenings during the hot days of the growing season, which leads to even and slow grape ripening. Furthermore the valley claims over 100 soil variations including layers of volcanic, gravel, sand and silt—a combination excellent for world-class red wine production.
