 The 2014 Rubicon displays the restraint and elegance of the cooler vintage. Still showing a very deep, youthful color, and intense almost purple hue. Beautifully perfumed and floral nose with violets, ripe plum, cedar wood and intense spiciness. A typical liquorice note and stony minerality also evident on the nose. Still youthful and intense, promising further maturation potential. The palate is medium-bodied, structured by beautifully sleek, ripe tannins which restrain the vibrant delicate fruit typical of this vintage, giving the wine an opulent texture which is kept focused by the linear acidity. The wine lingers on the palate with creamy fruit mouth-filling tannins. It has an aging potential of 15 – 20 years from vintage in the right conditions. 

Suggested food pairing: venison, game, pot roast, sharp cheeses
