Very deep, youthful colour, and intense almost purple hue. Very classic Rubicon nose with violets, ripe plum, cedar wood and intense spiciness. Still young and still intense, promising further maturation potential.
Description

Details

WA 92 Pts - According to Wine Advocate - The 2008 Rubicon is a blend of 71% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc that is raised in French oak for 20 months (65% new). It has a well-defined bouquet of blackberry, black truffle and tar. The palate is well balanced with supple tannins. There is a core of earthy red berry fruit infused with allspice, cumin and a touch of sage. The finish is very well defined and long. This is a far better Rubicon than the 2007, one worthy of its iconic status. Drink 2013-2020+.

According to Wine Spectator - Maturing, with dark tea and mulled spice notes emerging from the core of blackberry, tar, currant paste and tobacco. Bay leaf and tobacco details waft through the lightly firm finish. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Drink now.

 

Tasting Notes - Very deep, youthful colour, and intense almost purple hue. Very classic Rubicon nose with violets, ripe plum, cedar wood and intense spiciness. Still young and still intense, promising further maturation potential. The palate is full bodied, structured but packed with fresh dark fruit and rounded, linear tannins. 71% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Merlot, 9% Cabernet Franc, 1% Petit Verdot. Rated 90+
