2016 Inglenook Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford
The 82% Cabernet Sauvignon in this wine packs a punch, but its blend of bordelaise varietals makes it very approachable now. Classic Napa/Bordeaux aromas of crème de cassis, pipe tobacco, damp earth, and barrel spice. The texture is concentrated red velvet fruit. It really is a hallmark wine and delicious right now.

Inglenook Cabernet Sauvignon is a tribute to John Daniel, Jr., who produced the much-heralded Inglenook 1941 Cabernet Sauvignon from vine cuttings brought to the Inglenook Estate from Bordeaux by Gustave Niebaum. Today, this estate-grown wine is blended with the finest lots of Cabernet Sauvignon and other Bordeaux varieties that remain after the highly selective blending of Rubicon.
