Lot #548. Rubicon Estate Proprietary Red Rubicon 2005

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 95 RP.
"Francis Ford Coppola, the famous director, purchased Inglenook Wine Estate. The 2005 Proprietary Red Rubicon is a stunner from the famous estate vineyards first planted by Gustave Niebaum more than 100 years ago. Dense ruby/purple, the wine reveals classic, almost Graves-like scorched earth and volcanic notes mixed with blackberry, cassis and iron. Full-bodied, fresh and lively, with luscious, rich fruit, a good, heady glycerin level (14.8% alcohol) and well-integrated acidity, wood and tannin, this beauty is set for another two decades of evolution." Wine Advocate #219, Jun 2015
Provenance: The La Mancha Cellar
Notes: Nicked capsule.
Lot Location: Orange County
