Longstanding Rubissow-Sargent in Berkeley no longer exists. Rubissow - in Napa Valley - is the next generation of the Rubissow-Sargent wine brand. With Tony Sargent's retirement in 2004, second generation brother and sister vintners Ariel and Peter Rubissow bought their father's brand and began a rigorous 4 year process of reinventing it from the ground up. Their goal: to carry on the family winemaking tradition, while making modern, rich, expressive wines of place. Heavy-handed fruit-bomb style was avoided in favor of balanced, delicious wines with exceptional depth, perfume and beauty. After an extensive search, Peter and Ariel hired rising star winemaker TImothy Milos - Cliff Lede, Opus One, Stag's Leap Wine Cellars - as their new accomplice in wine. Next, a new vineyard team was hired to complement Milos' meticulous commitment to quality. Organic farming practices were refined and doubled, yields were radically reduced to improve fruit expression, and freaky levels of soil and vine testing done Read more »

    First thing that strikes me is how well sealed this wine is - it was like pulling a cork on 2 or 3 year old wine. This was the first good sign. The nose is terrific, all that great leather and spice that an older cab has; plus throw in a velvet smooth mouth feel; the tanninsare still there though quite soft. As for the color - I was expecting... Read More

  • Rubissow-Sargent Cabernet Sauvignon Mt. Veeder 2003


    This wine is amazing. The big fruits go from black to red in a seesaw throughout the glass. Such vinis! This is honest wine-making.

Cinnamon and cocoa points to the mature tannins and soft wild sage notes keep you coming back t... Read More
