Inglenook Cask Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

$69.95

Francis Ford Copolla has been producing the Cask Cabernet under the Niebaum-Copolla label from the inglenook estate.  A few years ago he finally regazined the naming rights and changed the name of the winery back to Inglenook, restoring it to it's former glory as one of California's fine wine pioneers. Pronounced aromas of dried cherries, coffee and fine tobacco precede rich flavors of black fruits and hints of licorice and spice. The weight, density and concentration of the fruit coupled with this vintage’s textured tannin layers will allow this vintage to develop additional complexity for years to come. Two hours of decanting is recommended before drinking; 2011 is a perfect vintage for collectors. Brix26 Inside Scoop:   During the last 25 years, Francis Ford Coppola has reunited all of the Estate's original vineyards and restored winemaking to the Inglenook chateau. In recognition of the importance of this site, the trademark was purchased in 2011, and the property was once again and forever named 'Inglenook'.

Finally got to try this Inglenook after hearing so much about it. Was a good Cab, but not outstanding or anything at the price. Did this as a tasting...maybe I need to sit with it for a bit? I'll give it a go another time.

Bright herbal notes jump past the fruit. Good value here for the brand.

A picture says a thousand words...empty glasses, empty bottle, and a T-Bone steak devoured. One of my favorite Napa wines.

Great '11 from Napa. Mr. Bascaules knows what he's doing.

This was an interesting night. The first bottle we had was amazing. Much the same characteristics of its expensive sibling "Rubicon" and a great wine at a medium price. So then came the second bottle of the night. Much like the crazy twin brother sometimes the second bottle had a totally different personality. While not bad or corked it was so drastically different than the first. Obviously something happened in storage but that will remain a mystery. Rating is on the first bottle.
