Inglenook-Rubicon Estate Rubicon 2012

In 1975, Francis Ford Coppola purchased the old Inglenook property, intent to restore the historic chateau, reunite the original vineyards, and create world-class red wines. The estate’s flagship wine is Rubicon; a proprietary blend of Cabernet, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot, produced from the best selections of the estate’s 235 contiguous acres of certified-organic vineyards, including Clone #29 Cabernet Sauvignon. This unique Cabernet clone defines the heart of the Rubicon blend. Designated and certified by the University of California at Davis as a heritage clone, it is considered one of the building blocks of the Napa Valley’s Cabernet reputation. [+]
