Premier claret-like Cabernet Sauvignon vintages, 1978 and 1979, released under the name Rubicon, are outstanding, representing model tastes of "Rutherford Dust," the affectionate name given to the characteristic earthy flavor of the region. Both wines show cherry-like overtones, a characteristic long evident in the old elegant Cabernets made at the turn of the century by Gustave Niebaum, founder of the estate and Inglenook Vineyards in 1879. ... Both Coppola bottles are exquisite and worthy of cellaring. The '78, with an additional year of bottle age, is easily the more complex with a silky, intense flavor, considerable finish and length. Its bouquet is sheer perfume. -- Nathan Chroman, Los Angeles Times, 02/86.
