K&L Notes

Rubicon's "Cask" Cabernet Sauvignon is a tribute to the wines of John Daniel's Inglenook. The estate grown fruit used in this wine are from the organically farmed Cohn and Chateau that have been producing cabernet since 1880. Aged in 500 liter American oak puncheons for 28 months, you'd be surprised how this wine is still dominated by incredibly ripe fruit. The oak adds a creamy, fleshy texture without the sometimes off-putting dill notes that American oak can add. This is a wine for your cellar, though if you must drink it now, decant an hour or two first.

    This is 100% cabernet sauvignon that comes from the Chateau and Cohn vineyards, which are both certified organic and have been producing cabernet since 1880. This wine is aged in 500 liter American oak puncheons for 28 months. Even so, this wine is still dominated by the ripe fruit! The American oak adds a creamy, fleshy texture rather then a spicy dill character.
