Inglenook, Rubicon, Napa Valley 2020


Case Format: 6x75cl

With nearly 235 hectares of vineyard, Inglenook represents a huge estate that has been crafting beautiful wines for over a decade. Reflecting the diversity of Napa Valley, its terroir is complex, comprising a mixture of loamy, well-drained soils at its rear, and finer soils at its front.

1978 saw the first ever vintage of Rubicon. A Bordeaux-style blend, the owners Francis and Eleanor Coppola enlisted the help of Philippe Bascaules from Château Margaux, to aid the creation of this spectacular wine.

A delicate, refined and balanced wine, Rubicon is the perfect emblem of Napa’s mixed terroirs, displaying the mixture of warm and earthy flavours that are typical of Rutherford.



James Suckling

So perfumed with lavender, violets, bark and blackcurrants. Some mint and spearmint. It’s medium- to full-bodied with integrated tannins and a gorgeous finish. Lovely finesse and texture. This is extremely well done for a 2020. So drinkable now. Drink or hold.

Jane Anson

Austere on the opening beats, still closed down at this point, allow it to take a few breaths before the tannic frame opens up. The concentration and spice of the vintage see the black Cabernet fruits shot through with grilled sandalwood, cocoa bean, tea, cigar box and cloves, emphasising the concentration and power of this magical site. The winemaking team with director Philippe Bascaules have teased nuance and freshness alongside, with pomegranate and oyster shell adding a rising curve of juice through the finish. As ever it is hard to resist. Francis Ford Coppola owner. All aged in French oak barrels, 75% new.
