2007 Rubicon Estate "Rubicon" Rutherford Bordeaux Blend (Previously $160)

SKU #1077239 93 points Wine Enthusiast

 New oak stands out in toast and caramelized wood sweetness on this Cab, overshining to some degree the underlying blackberry, cherry and black currant fruit. It’s quite a fashionable, delectable young wine, and will probably be consumed too early by many people who buy it, but it’s really a cellar candidate. Made with a few drops of Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, it should develop for 12–15 years. *Cellar Selection*  (12/2010)

92 points Wine Spectator

 Complex aromas of fresh leather, currant, spice, tobacco, black licorice and plum lead to a ripe, rich, full-bodied palate, elegantly proportioned and stylish, firming on the finish where this picks up a touch of mineral and crushed rock.  (10/2010)

90 points Wine & Spirits

 Dominated by tannins at first, this yields little beyond coffee-scented richness until it reveals bold, juicy fruit after a day of air. It's a sweet, rich vintage of Rubicon, needing several years to mellow and develop complexity. For seared steak.  (4/2011)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The flagship wine, the 2007 Rubicon (94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Petit Verdot, and 2% Cabernet Franc) has a nose of burning embers, subtle smoke, black currants, and sweet cherries. It is clearly the best of these wines. Medium-bodied, elegant, and meant for immediate consumption, it has enough stuffing and overall balance to evolve for 10, or possibly even 12-15 years in a very cold cellar. (RP)  (12/2010)
