    June 4, 2019 - Still a dark inky purple with red on the rim. Nose of sweet cherries, plums, and more floral that i was expecting. This is my first foray with Inglenook. Not a great bargain, but this is a very good/great wine.

    April 20, 2019 - Decant and let breath for 2 hours to soften. Probably can last another 3-4 years in the cellar.

    September 15, 2018 - This wine is aging well and drinking now. After a 3 hr decant, my guests and I thought it was excellent. Very balanced from front to back with some lingering tannins.

    December 28, 2017 - Tasted SBS with Anderson's Conn Valley 2010 Estate Reserve Cab: Dark inky purple; effusive nose of sweet black cherries, plums, quite floral. Huge contrast to the stern dry nose and palate of the Conn Vly, this is sweet and softer with bakery aromas and spices, Napa mint quality and black pepper. More subtle tannins and less overt acidity than the Conn. With airing, gets a certain thickness of palate and ripeness and extract further emerges. These are both real heavyweights and "in your face" cabernets though this is much more "user friendly" than the Conn Vly. While neither is my preferred style, this was not painful to drink (in other words, this one I could have another glass of without feeling I'd been hit by a train).

    March 5, 2017 - Drank next to 2010 Myriad Beckstoffer Dr crane. Paired with NY strip and tenderloin. Served blind at family dinner. Split decision as both wines were quite different. Myriad was more fruit forward with darker purple and black fruit. The Rubicon's red fruit, earthiness, and spice was a more Bordeaux like offering. Both are excellent wines. Hard to choose one but for my palate i prefer the Rubicon at the end of the day.
