Spicy black cherry with a sweet chewy mouthfeel. Maybe a little too sweet but still very enjoyable. Read more

Nice smooth cab tried at grandparents NYE Read more

Coppola's Claret is always a good one. This went with our steak & asparagus and a few cheeses after. Very full-flavor. Read more

Rating: 95/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the August 2010 issue. From its intense, impressively layered aromas of currants, sweet spice, dusty soils and dried flowers to its very deep, genuinely complex flavors, this wonderfully rich wine hits every Cabernet mark with complete confidence. It is weighty without being the least bit heavy, and it shows a fine fit of integral tannins while remaining ever supple in feel. It is no tougher than young Cab will be, and its combination of structure, strength and insistent fruit is the recipe for real success. Allow for at least five years of additional age, and count on it developing famously for another decade or more.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Cellar for future drinking. Wine will improve with bottle aging.

Lots of berried fruit flavors are well balanced with the oak making this a perfect grilled meat companion.

Has an exceptional aromatic quality and luscious flavors of red cherries and blackberries as well as plum and cocoa on the mid-palate with a soft and lingering finish.

91 Points - Wine & Spirits "This is 100 percent cabernet sauvignon selected from the Cohn and Chateau vineyards on Francis Ford Coppola's Rubicon Estate. It's aged in 500-liter American oak puncheons, referencing the larger format oak John Daniel, Jr., used for his Cask wines of the 1950's. This is a plump wine, filled with bosky cherry flavors and the bright light of acidity to cut some of the sweetness of the fruit. The finish heads toward figginess, chewy, generous and smooth. For roast rack of lamb. "90 Points - Wine Enthusiast "An elegant, complex 100% Cab, solid and potent, although its also young and fresh in tannins and needs time in the cellar. Not showing particular finesse now, with straightforward cherry, blackberry and currant flavors, but has the balanced stuffing for the cellar. Better after 2011."Winemaker's Notes: Our 2006 CASK Cabernet has an exceptional aromatic quality and luscious flavors of red cherries and blackberries as well as plum and cocoa on the mid-palate. With its soft, lingering finish, the wine is easy to enjoy now with roasted or grilled meats, pasta and cheeses. It is a classic representation of Rutherford Cabernet.

A chocolatey wine with a deep red color, dark plummy fruits, and a nice dose of warm baking spices on the finish. Silky-smooth tannins give it a great friendly structure.

Rubicon Cask is their finest expression of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from this historic estate vineyards in Rutherford. Originally the Niebaum estate, wine grapes have been grown on this property since the 1800's. Wine Enthusiast Magazine's Winemaker of the the year, Scott McCleod crafted this Cab with the bold intensity that you'd expect from the Rutherford bench. Wine & Spirits scored it 91 points saying "This is 100 percent cabernet sauvignon selected from the Cohn and Chateau vineyards on Francis Ford Coppola's Rubicon Estate. It's aged in 500-liter American oak puncheons, referencing the larger format oak John Daniel, Jr., used for his Cask wines of the 1950's.

For roast rack of lamb." Limited!
