1999 Niebaum-Coppola "Rubicon" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

SKU #1002990 94 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark A wonderfully refined wine, with firm, ripe tannins that fream an elegant blend of rich plum, balckberry, coffee, chocolate, cassis, black cherry, cedar and spice flavors. The finish is long and smooth, with a bright cherry boost at the end. Francis Coppola's benchmark wine. Inner quote mark (8/2003)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Enormously complex, smooth and sophisticated, with layers of currant, blackberry, earth, plum and cedary oak flavors that are woven together nicely. Finishes with a long, intricate aftertaste and tannins that are firm and integrated. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. *Collectibles* (JL) Inner quote mark (5/2003)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 1999 Rubicon is a stunning, inky/purple-colored offering revealing a sumptuous bouquet of smoked meats, barbeque spice, creosote, black cherry, truffle, dried herb, and compost-like characteristics. Full-bodied, rich, and dense, with well-integrated acidity as well as an extravagant richness, this stunning Rubicon can be drunk now and over the next 15-20 years. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2003)

90 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Good medium ruby color. Very aromatic, ripe nose hints at violet and a leafy franc note. Sweet, juicy and suave, with black cherry flavor nicely firmed by bright acidity. Highly perfumed in the mouth; bright and firmly built. Offers the clarity and grip that the '99 Cask cabernet misses. The tannins hit the palate late. May well merit a higher score with a few years of additional bottle aging. (ST) 90+ Inner quote mark (5/2003)
