($100; cabernet sauvignon with 3% each merlot and cabernet franc) Good medium ruby color. Very aromatic, ripe nose hints at violet and a leafy franc note. Sweet, juicy and suave, with black cherry flavor nicely firmed by bright acidity. Highly perfumed in the mouth; bright and firmly built. Offers the clarity and grip that the '99 Cask cabernet misses. The tannins hit the palate late. May well merit a higher score with a few years of additional bottle aging.

The 1999 Rubicon is a stunning, inky/purple-colored offering revealing a sumptuous bouquet of smoked meats, barbeque spice, creosote, black cherry, truffle, dried herb, and compost-like characteristics. Full-bodied, rich, and dense, with well-integrated acidity as well as an extravagant richness, this stunning Rubicon can be drunk now and over the next 15-20 years.

Enormously complex, smooth and sophisticated, with layers of currant, blackberry, earth, plum and cedary oak flavors that are woven together nicely. Finishes with a long, intricate aftertaste and tannins that are firm and integrated. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. 2,850 cases made.
