2016 Inglenook Estate Cab
On the nose, the 2016 Inglenook Cabernet Sauvignon opens with very focused fresh, ripe black cherry and blackberry aromas. In the background, scents of garrigue – lavender, thyme, and bay – emerge and build complexity. On the palate, the wine is superbly balanced to the point that it is difficult to identify individual flavor components, although cassis bud and blackberry do reveal themselves. The fine-grained, polished tannins are very much in harmony with the oak and exhibit an underlying firmness that continues throughout the long, lingering aromatic finish.

ABOUT THE WINERY
The first harvest of grapes from the Inglenook was in 1882. Today, the Inglenook Estate is owned in majority by Francis Ford Coppola, the six-time Academy Award-winning director of The Godfather trilogy. This particular California wine is a tribute to John Daniel, Jr. who brought vine cuttings to the Inglenook Estate from Bordeuax.
