Been to the Old Hickory at the Gaylord Texas several time and this on is a staple for me. Consistently out does every other wine I have had. Love it. Smooth and full bodied.

Ripe, with spicy plum and blackberry fruit that's fresh and vibrant, yet elegant and stylish, finishing with a zesty Cabernet aftertaste. Drink now through 2012. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 7,250 cases made. -JL Wine Spectator. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2004 Rubicon Estate Cask Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml

Made from only estate-grown fruit, this is traditional California Cabernet at its best. This is a tribute to the wines made by Inglenook. Rich, cassis fruit, alluring tannins, and a toasty vanilla finish make this a wine to enjoy now, or cellar for decades.

Wine Enthusiast ReviewBased on the old 100% Cabs from Inglewood that aged forever, Rubicon's interpretation has the same hard, tough tannins in youth. It's not a wine you want to drink anytime soon. Bursting with cherry, blackberry, plum and vanilla flavors, it has the elegant balance needed for ageability. Best after 2010, and should hold and improve for many years after.Wine Tasting NotesOur 2004 CASK Cabernet is a classic, grand style American Cabernet. It is loaded with ripe red cherry and rum raisin scents, which are telltale hallmarks of Rutherford Cabernet in a great year. Immediately accessible for its forward charm, the dense and supple tannins are inviting to experience now, but the rewards will come with three-to-six years of bottle age.Out of respect for the environment and our vineyard staff, as well as our belief that organic grapes make better wine, Rubicon Estate is farmed organically and certified by California Certified Organic Farmers.

Winemaker's Notes:

This beautiful giftbox features an individual bottle of our flagship wine, the 2004 Rubicon.These rosewood wine boxes were handmade especially for Rubicon Estate in New Zealand using traditional cabinetry techniques. Rosewood was selected in the creation of these boxes due to its durability, fine color, polish and sheen. The lustrous finish is achieved through a process of multiple sandings by hand, sealing with clear undercoats, additional sandings and an application of two coats of lacquer. The Rubicon Estate logo is laser etched into the lid. These wine boxes are exclusive to Rubicon Estate in the United States.
