    (2004 Vintage) The Rubicon moniker has typically come on sturdy, ageworthy wines that beg for age, but this relatively supple and smoothly textured offering is very accessible now. It tempers its obvious themes of black cherries with a good dose of sweet oak, and it holds tannin to a quiet minimum. It steers clear of bombast and high extract in its embrace of unhidden fruit, and it will reach its best with but a few years of age.
