K&L Notes

91 points and "Highly Recommended" by the Wine Spectator: "Spicy, generous and complex, with sharply focused currant, plum and nutmeg flavors that zing right through the long finish. A wine with rambunctious flavors that become polished and lively on the finish. Should be at its best after 1996. 6,000 cases made." (10/91)

    We sourced this extraordinary lot from a perfect, temperature controlled cellar in the hills of Los Gatos, where the wine had been undisturbed for decades. As soon as we had returned with the collection, I rushed to open the Inglenook. This bottle transported me back to a different era of Napa Cabernet. It has a bouquet that one only finds with more than 20 years of time in the bottle; ethereal and layered, but still vital and full of the black currant and cigar box aromas that is all Cabernet. It is a much more subtle wine than the modern version, now sold as both Cask and Rubicon by Niebaum Coppola, and is lower in alcohol as well. This will make a great pairing with your next porterhouse or rib eye. A Napa classic!
    Drink from 2010 to 2016
