  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 90

    ($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.

  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 93

    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.

    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.

The Rubicon Estate Winery (formerly Niebaum-Coppola Winery and Inglenook Winery) is located in Rutherford, California in the heart of Napa Valley. The winery sits on a portion of the historic Napa property first acquired in 1879 by Finnish Sea Captain Gustave Niebaum, founder of the Inglenook Winery.

In 1975, Francis Ford Coppola and his wife Eleanor purchased Niebaum's Victorian home, along with 120 acres of surrounding vineyards. In 1995, Coppola reunited the two original Inglenook parcels by purchasing the grand Inglenook chateau and surrounding vineyards (neighboring vineyards now include Heitz Wine Cellars Martha's Vineyard and Beaulieu Vineyard Georges de Latour). The winery underwent a name change in early 2006, and is now known as Rubicon Estate.
