Inglenook – Rutherford, Napa – CA - 2014
Winemaker Notes: The 2014 vintage of Inglenook Cabernet Sauvignon reflects a very pure composition that contains only small amounts of Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, and just a touch of Merlot. Cassis, blackberries, plums, and black currants provide juicy, mouthfilling flavors while distinct notes of cigar box, oak, graphite, and earthy spices create aromatic accents that are bound to evolve and become even more intense with bottle age.
Blend: 93% Cabernet Sauvignon 3% Cabernet Franc 3% Petit Verdot 1% Merlot
Vineyard: The 1941 vintage was produced by John Daniel, Jr. from vines brought to the Inglenook Estate from Bordeaux by the Founder Gustave Niebaum. ( Vineyard: Chateau, Cohn, Creek, Small Block, Walnut)
Wine & Dine: This bottle pairs very well with slow roasted brisket, carmalized onions, or an arugula salad.
