The 1997 Rubicon is a shining example of how wines from incredible vineyards can tirelessly age. A Bordeaux blend of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot and 3% Cabernet Franc. As Francis Ford Coppola's flagship wine from the once before and now again Inglenook this one is not one to miss and from a perfectly conditioned cellar since it's release in 2001.
"What is so impressive about great vintages is their early appeal for their fresh charm and forward fruit, but also the rewards of patience an additional ten to fifteen years of bottle age can bring." - Scott McCleod / Winemaker
