Niebaum-Coppola Tasting Notes  
Our 2004 Rubicon reflects the warm growing conditions of the vintage, displaying a telltale scent of violets and sour cherry flavors, which are the hallmark of this wine. Its super-ripe character delivers a sweet impression, supple tannins, and a prolonged finish of licorice, dark berries, and vanilla.
Wine Spectator  
Supple, graceful and harmonious, with a mix of ripe, fleshy espresso bean, mocha, dried currant and dusty berry fruit that's focused and persistent, ending with firm yet integrated tannins. Best from 2011 through 2016. —James Laube, 88 points
Wine Enthusiast  
The new Rubicon, which is almost all Cabernet Sauvignon, brings to mind the 2003 and 2004. It doesn't have the sheer force of 2002 or 2005, but it's certainly a classic Rutherford wine, and has a good future. Bone dry, it shows herb-infused flavors of blackberries, cocoa, spices and smoky sandalwood, and yes, the tannins are dusty. Drinkable now, with a good decant, and should develop in the bottle over the next 6?8 years. —Steve Heimoff, 93 points
