International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 108

(to have been bottled in mid-March) Saturated ruby. Pungent aromas of black cherry, coffee, bitter chocolate and violet. Dense, sweet and deep; this has broad, palate-coating fruit with the strength to support the big, cheek-coating tannins. Quite long on the aftertaste, and not overly oaky.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 150

Outstanding (no small accomplishment in this vintage), the deep ruby/purple-colored, medium to full-bodied 2000 Rubicon possesses more new oak than the 1999, along with impressive richness, and notes of cedar, smoke, black currants, and meaty/forest floor characteristics. It does not have the concentration, power, or aging potential of the 1999, but it will provide delicious drinking now and over the next decade.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

Beautifully crafted, rich, vibrant and deftly balanced. Wonderful currant, blackberry, anise, sage, mineral and fresh earth offer layers of complexity and concentration. Finishes with just the right amount of tannins to give it a solid backbone. 5,365 cases made.

Ripe berries and fruit-forward nose, but surprisingly light-bodied to drink. Well-balanced, but starting to fade in complexity.

This is getting better with plenty of tannins to support another 5-6 years in the bottle with little effort. Deep ruby color with flavor profile of blackberries, chocolate, coffee, and cedar.

bland, not sure what happened. Properly cellared but boring.

About what you would expect. Solid effort, if nothing outstanding.
