Brooding aromas of cassis dark chocolate licorice violet and pepper. Dense broad and sweet with a youthful reserve to the intense flavors of dark berries tobacco and spices. Already shows a plush texture but there's terrific sappy energy at the core. Finishes very long and aromatic with fine building tannins and the structure for long aging.

One of the best vintages of Rubicon to date and for the price it's a fantastic value that's great for building up your cellar. Right now the wine is still young and tight with firm gripping tannins that need some time to mellow. Fortunately there's a great concentrated black-fruit core and enough acidity alongside the tannins to support long-term aging. Spicy and earthy with accents of black tea cedar and crushed violets. Try after 2016.
