2020 Inglenook Rubicon

Forrygende topvin fra Rutherford i Napa Valley.

Med Rubicon får man den absolutte topvin fra Inglenook Estate, hvis historie strækker sig helt tilbage til 1879. Siden 1970'erne har huset dog været ejet af den kendte filmskaber Francis Ford Coppola, mens selveste Philippe Bascaules fra Château Margaux siden 2016 har stået i spidsen for vinene herfra.

Rubicon er i 2020 skabt på 91 % Cabernet Sauvignon og 9 % Merlot, med lagring i 20 måneder i franske egetræsfade, heraf 75 % nye fade.

Her får man er særdeles fortryllende vin med en storladen og imponerende duft og smag. En koncentration af solbær, samt sekundære noter af læder, tobak og chokolade. I munden er der stor fylde, men med en balancerende tannin og frugtsyre. Det er elegance med koncentration og finesse i særklasse.

Jane Anson - 97

Austere on the opening beats, still closed down at this point, allow it to take a few breaths before the tannic frame opens up. The concentration and spice of the vintage see the black Cabernet fruits shot through with grilled sandalwood, cocoa bean, tea, cigar box and cloves, emphasising the concentration and power of this magical site. The winemaking team with director Philippe Bascaules have teased nuance and freshness alongside, with pomegranate and oyster shell adding a rising curve of juice through the finish. As ever it is hard to resist. Francis Ford Coppola owner. All aged in French oak barrels, 75% new.

James Suckling - 96

So perfumed with lavender, violets, bark and blackcurrants. Some mint and spearmint. It’s medium- to full-bodied with integrated tannins and a gorgeous finish. Lovely finesse and texture. This is extremely well done for a 2020. So drinkable now. Drink or hold.

The Wine Independent - 96

The 2020 Rubicon, 91% Cabernet Sauvignon and 9% Merlot, is deep garnet-purple in color. It tumbles out of the glass with gregarious notions of redcurrant jelly, black raspberries, and warm cassis, followed by hints of graphite, dried mint, and tar with a hint of licorice. The medium to full-bodied palate is bright and vivacious, with bags of red and black berry layers and gorgeous tension, supported by fine-grained tannins, and finishing on a lingering anise note. Impressive showing for this challenging vintage!

Decanter - 95

Ripe and heady on the nose, full and generously aromatic. Supple and forward, lovely energy and poise to this initially despite it being quite powerful and potent. Tannins are on the slightly present and drying side right now, a little tight and there’s something that constricts the mid palate onwards, with the texture dominating the more fruit forward elements and creating a bit of a barrier to enjoyment. Mineral, stoney, flint and pencil lead aspects linger. Ageing 20 months in French oak, 75% new.
