With his first harvest in 1882, Inglenook proprietor Gustave Niebaum set out to make wines that would rival the best European masterpieces, creating one of the first gravity-flow facilities in Napa Valley in 1887. Still today, they’re recognized for consistently producing richly captivating and classically styled wines from their vineyards located on the iconic Rutherford Bench.

In 1975, Francis and Eleanor Coppola purchased a portion of the original estate, including the Niebaum mansion and some vineyard acreage. After discovering the history of the iconic estate, the Coppola’s reunited the historic estate’s original vineyards with this Rutherford Estate Cabernet Sauvignon representing the wine that Gustave dreamed about, competing with some of the world’s top Cabernets.

Description

2017 INGLENOOK RUTHERFORD CABERNET SAUVIGNON

“The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is rich and boisterous in feel, with good energy and terrific balance for the year. Sweet floral notes, blood orange and spice add shades of nuance to a core of dark red berry fruit. More than anything else, though, I am very pleasantly surprised by the wine’s freshness and overall energy.”

Aromas of currants, blackberries and violets follow through to a medium body and firm, tight tannins that give it length and structure….”

A classic Napa Cabernet, smooth and rich, softly spoken with swirls of black fruits and gentle spice. This will age but there is no need to wait too long as the sides are already smoothed out. A great entry point to Rubicon, showing how carefully Inglenook walks the line between richly powerful concentrated Cabernet and a fresher lean style of wine. No trace of over ripeness or the smoke that impacted the very end of the picking. Tasted twice. 95ha estate on a huge, almost 700ha estate. Philippe Bascaules director of winemaking. 50% new oak. Blend completed with 1% Petit Verdot.”
