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.
