Winemaker's Notes

Inglenook Rubicon Red Wine 2018 from Napa Valley is a masterpiece crafted with precision and expertise, embodying the essence of this esteemed winery's legacy. This vintage likely presents a symphony of aromas, with ripe dark fruits such as blackberry and plum mingling with subtle hints of cassis and dried herbs.

On the palate, expect a complex interplay of flavors, where rich notes of dark fruit are complemented by layers of cedar, tobacco, and baking spices, all gracefully supported by judiciously integrated oak. The wine's texture is likely to be velvety, thanks to well-structured tannins that provide a smooth and luxurious mouthfeel. Balanced acidity adds freshness and vibrancy, enhancing the overall harmony and drinkability of this exceptional blend. As each sip culminates, the wine is likely to leave a lasting impression, with a long and lingering finish that invites reflection and appreciation for its depth and complexity.

Critic Ratings

James Suckling Review - Rated 97:
Subtle and complex red with blackberry, black truffle, sweet tobacco and mahogany. Highlights of lavender and violets. Full-bodied and very tight with finesse and tension. Very polished, fine tannins. Long finish. Delicious already, but best after 2022.

Jeb Dunnuck Review - Rated 95:
The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Rubicon is based on a blend of 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Merlot, and the balance Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. It’s a more backward, closed wine, offering classy notes of crème de cassis, lead pencil shavings, freshly crushed stone, and cedar. More medium to full-bodied and elegant, I’d like to see a touch more density and richness on the mid-palate, but it's beautifully balanced, has gorgeous tannins, integrated acidity, and outstanding length on the finish. Give this classic, impressive, old school beauty 4-5 years in the cellar and enjoy over the following 15-20.
Wine Enthusiast Review - Rated 94:
This vintage has 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Franc and 1% Petit Verdot. Refined and elegantly structured, it offers notes of currant, cedar and espresso, the tannins thick and firm. The savory concentration has an Old World charm and restraint with well-integrated oak. Enjoy best from 2028–2038.
