2000 Niebaum-Coppola "Rubicon" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

SKU #1008561 93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Beautifully crafted, rich, vibrant and deftly balanced. Wonderful currant, blackberry, anise, sage, mineral and fresh earth offer layers of complexity and concentration. Finishes with just the right amount of tannins to give it a solid backbone. *Collectibles* (JL) Inner quote mark (10/2003)

Outer quote mark No tasting note given. Inner quote mark (6/2004)

89-91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Saturated ruby. Pungent aromas of black cherry, coffee, bitter chocolate and violet. Dense, sweet and deep; this has broad, palate-coating fruit with the strength to support the big, cheek-coating tannins. Quite long on the aftertaste, and not overly oaky. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2003)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Outstanding (no small accomplishment in this vintage), the deep ruby/purple-colored, medium to full-bodied 2000 Rubicon possesses more new oak than the 1999, along with impressive richness, and notes of cedar, smoke, black currants, and meaty/forest floor characteristics. It does not have the concentration, power, or aging potential of the 1999, but it will provide delicious drinking now and over the next decade. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2003)

90 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Showcases the shortcomings of the vintage as well as the strengths of its terroir and winemaking. The blackberry and cassis flavors are obviously short, and snap to an abrupt finish, but the textural complexity and oaky overlay are very fine. A charming wine meant for early drinking. Inner quote mark (11/2003)
