Description

Critical Acclaim:

Inglenook's 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Cask presents a distinctly Old World profile. Sweet tobacco, cedar, savory herbs, plums and black cherries are some of the nuances that take shape in the glass. This pretty, mid-weight Cabernet Sauvignon is an excellent choice for drinking over the next decade or so. Readers should expect a lithe, feminine wine built on aromatics, nuance and understatement. Score: 91 points -- Vinous, Oct 2014

The 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Cask emerges with scents of grilled herbs, cedar, red fruit, crushed rocks and smoke. The 2011 possesses lovely balance in the tense, wiry style of the vintage. There is plenty of potential here. The blend is 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Cabernet Franc and 2% Merlot. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2023.  Score: 89-91 points -- Wine Advocate, Dec 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

“This is the best, young Inglenook Cabernet Sauvignon I have tasted during my professional career of 25 years.” – Robert Parker

 

History
In 1975, Francis Ford Coppola purchased the historic Inglenook property, intent on restoring the estate’s legacy of creating world-class wines equal to those, founder Gustave Niebaum and his grandnephew John Daniel Jr. made for decades. Inglenook CASK wines, which were originally produced between 1934 and 1964, have been judged by critics to be among the best Cabernets ever made. Since 1995, the Coppola family has produced a new era of CASK wines that are crafted in the same spirit as those made more than half a century ago. 

 

The Vintage
2012 was one of the best vintages in recent history because of near perfect climate conditions. The entire season was marked by moderate temperatures, which lasted through September and October. Having no heat spikes or rain to contend with in the fall allowed the fruit to hang on the vines longer, giving the grapes better concentration and ripeness as well as more textural dimension and flavor complexity.

 

Winemaking Notes 
Over the last few years, we’ve perfected our already refined winemaking methods, using smaller trays during harvest, a gentler destemmer that minimizes oxidation, and applying greater scrutiny during the fermentation process by evaluating individual blocks of fruit daily to optimize pump overs. These methods have greatly enhanced the quality of the 2012 vintage.

 

Tasting Notes
On the nose, black cherries, strawberries, and raspberries create a rich perfume that’s enlivened by notes of violets and baking spices. There’s an exceptional balance of ripeness, not overdone or underdone, enhanced by moderate acidity, even development on the palate, and impressions of blueberry cream and black raspberries. This wine is meaty. Supple, long lasting tannins frame richly textured flavors that linger on the finish.
