- 95+ Punkte Robert Parkers WINE ADVOCATE: "The proprietary red, the 2014 Rubicon (96% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Merlot and Petit Verdot) has a saturated black/purple color and a nose of blackberry and cassis with some camphor and charcoal. Chewy, rich and full-bodied, with exceptional precision and personality, this is a stunningly delicious and complex wine with a good 25-30 years of further potential. It is the antithesis of the rustic, somewhat coarse reds that were made under the Rubicon moniker when Francis Ford Coppola first acquired the Inglenook estate. Kudos to him for making dramatic improvements. Approachable already, this wine won’t hit its stride for another decade and will last 30 or more years.
You have to applaud the new bottles and new packaging for the Inglenook wines. This property, purchased by Francis Ford Coppola and his wife Eleanor, remains a relatively large estate of over 235 acres primarily dedicated to Cabernet Sauvignon."
- 95+ Punkte VINOUS Antonio Galloni: "The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Rubicon exudes density, power and concentration. Black cherry, mocha, licorice, dark spice and menthol infuse a deep, beautifully resonant Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon. There is plenty of tannin lurking beneath, but also more than enough richness and overall depth to round things out. Next to the Cabernet Sauvignon, the Rubicon has a bit more sweetness, new oak influence and overall richness."
- 97 Punkte JAMES SUCKLING: "Aromas of blackcurrants, dark chocolate and dried flowers. Very aromatic. Full body, velvety tannins and impressive intensity and richness. Opulent fruit, yet this is still lightly austere and velvety. A beauty every sense of the word. Harmonious, classic wine. Drink in 2019."
- 94 Punkte DECANTER: "Notes of briary plum, blackcurrant, dried herbs, graphite and rich soil introduce an elegant, open-knit and nicely balanced wine. More core depth than the 2013 rendition."

|Notizen des Weinguts:||In 1975, Francis Ford Coppola purchased part of the historic Inglenook property, intent on restoring the estate’s legacy of creating world-class wines equal to those that founder Gustave Niebaum and his grandnephew John Daniel Jr. produced for decades. Rubicon, the estate’s flagship wine since 1978, is produced from the best fruit on the estate and comprised of the historic Gustave Niebaum Cabernet selection, first planted on the property in the 1880s. Over the last few years, we’ve perfected our already refined winemaking methods, using smaller trays during harvest, a gentler destemmer that minimizes oxidation, and applying greater scrutiny during the fermentation process by evaluating individual blocks of fruit daily to optimize pump overs. These methods have greatly enhanced the quality of the 2012 vintage. 100% French Oak; 75% New Oak|
