Inglenook Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 Napa Valley

Inglenook Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 Napa Valley

€147.00
 

Ruby in color, with a violet-edged hue, the 2017 Inglenook Cabernet Sauvignon shows notes of blackberry brambles, black cherry, truffle, fennel and cocoa. The structure is tightly-woven, with fine, round, velvety tannins; hints of vanilla and licorice arise during the long, generous finish. Superb balance and freshness ensure that this wine will continue to evolve in the bottle for years to come.

Description

The winery was founded in 1879 by a Finnish sea captain. Niebaum's employee Hamden McIntyre was not an architect but he designed gravity flow wineries for Inglenook and Far Niente along with other wineries of the decade.[1] Niebaum died in 1908 and the winery was shut down during prohibition Upon the repeal of prohibition Niebaum's widow, Suzanne Niebaum, reopened Inglenook and brought in a viticulturist and an enologist to upgrade the winemaking system. Niebaum's great-nephew, John Daniel Jr., took over operations in 1939 and it flourished during the 1940s and 1950s until it was sold to Allied Grape Growers in 1964.
